ibidi Online Course:
Successful Immunofluorescence Image Acquisition and Quantification
Immunofluorescence is a powerful method used to visualize structures and molecules of interest within cells and tissues. However, researchers are often challenged when trying to obtain and process sharp and brilliant images. For successful immunofluorescence images, each step—including cell preparation, staining, and image acquisition—needs to be optimized.
This new ibidi online course is an extension of the previous webinar, How to Set Up a Successful Immunofluorescence Experiment, and is once again hosted by our invited speaker Shuntaro Yamada. During his first webinar, Yamada shared his practical tips and tricks for immunofluorescence staining as he guided us through each step of a standard immunofluorescence protocol. This follow-up course expands on that topic with an in-depth description of how to perform successful image acquisition and quantification.
After completing the course, you will have advanced knowledge and a better understanding of the necessary tools required to process beautiful immunofluorescence stainings.
No sterile working benches or cells are required to participate. Attend the course from the comfort of your office or home.
Recording coming soon.
This course is designed for scientists and technical associates who have experience with cell culture and sterile working techniques, but want guidance when performing and troubleshooting immunofluorescence experiments.
During this course, we will present image and processing examples using the ImageJ software, FIJI. Therefore, it is beneficial to preinstall the software and get familiar with its basics functions.
- Introduction to immunofluorescence staining (User Protocol 10)
- Basic image acquisition and quantification
- Discussion about your experimental aims and setups
