In the first of a series of infocus interviews looking into the careers of eminent figures from across the field of microscopy, we are delighted and privileged to speak to one of the RMS’s most respected and long-standing members, Dr Peter Evennett, Hon FRMS.Download
The Microscience Microscopy Congress is quite simply the biggest and boldest of its kind in Europe. For years it has brought the global microscopy community together, with a superb conference shining a light on the latest scientific research, and a unique exhibition enabling companies – both large and small – to showcase a quantity and quality of equipment that never fails to impress.Download
Why is remote control of microscopes important? Remote control enables your ability to work with a microscope from a distance whether it is in a remote lab or a clean room. You can provide remote support for any user to help them solve a problem as quickly as possible. It is also useful for knowledge transfer.Download
Anyone who has been active in the microscopy community for any decent length of time will know John Delly who works at the McCrone Group. He is an excellent didactic teacher, widely respected for his knowledge and ability to teach and instruct.Download
…It’s March 2006 and the first ever issue of infocus is hot off the presses.
