Tissue clearing seminar : Accelerate your 3D imaging workflow 2019

6 – 13 December 2019   

ADELAIDE      MELBOURNE              SYDNEY               BRISBANE  

We would like to thank everyone who attended our seminar “Tissue Clearing seminar – Accelerate your 3D imaging workflow”.

Tissue clearing is essential for non-destructive, three-dimensional (3D) imaging of biological samples. Combined with labeling techniques, tissue clearing allows for the visualisation of cellular structures in their physiological context.

This seminar focused on the X-CLARITY systems and reagents used standardise, simplify, and accelerate each step of the tissue clearing process. X-CLARITY is based on CLARITY (Clear Lipid-exchanged Acrylamide-hybridized Rigid Imaging / Immunostaining /in situ-hybridization-compatible Tissue hYdrogel), a tissue clearing method developed by the Deisseroth lab at Stanford University. The new DeepLabel Antibody Staining Kit accelerates immunolabeling of cleared tissues for a broad range of applications.

Mastersizer and Zetasizer training 2019

June – September 2019


We recently hosted a series of training courses focused on the Malvern Mastersizer and Malvern Zetasizer instruments. Courses were run in all major cities around Australia and provided users with the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge in achieving reliable particle sizing.

Both training courses are one day events that help users understand how the instruments work, how to make reliable measurements and how to interpret data. Important maintenance and sampling procedures are also covered in practicals.
The training courses will be run again in the future. Venues will depend on the level interest received. Contact us now to reserve your seat.

Test drive the new Phenom Pharos SEM – September 2019

Pharos semFaster, higher-resolution desktop SEM : Use the new Phenom Pharos SEM with FEG source 

We recently toured the east coast of Australia and demonstrated the new  Phenom Pharos SEM – the first desktop SEM solution that includes a field emission gun (FEG) source to deliver crisp, high brightness images. It offers floor model performance on a desktop microscope with magnifications of up to one million times and <3nm resolution. Download the flier here

Experienced users and non-users of SEM were invited to discover new insights via scheduled demonstrations followed by additional “hands on” time for sample analysis.

Morphologi 4-ID and Phenom ProX SEM Workshop

Wed 29 May, Thur 30 May, Fri 31 May 2019

ATA Scientific recently held a free workshop at RMIT University (Building 55), where attendees were welcomed to test drive two new high resolution imaging systems:

  • Phenom ProX Gen 5 SEM – New 5th generation Phenom desktop SEM with enhanced imaging performance plus fully integrated x-ray analysis (EDS), fastest time to imaging and “never lost” navigation.
  • Morphologi 4-ID – new Morphologi® 4 automated particle characterisation system provides the unique capability to accurately measure particles (1 to 1000 µm) and chemically identify foreign contaminants using the Raman microprobe.

High resolution particle size & shape with chemical ID using Morphologically-Directed Raman spectroscopy

 13-24 May 2019:     Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

This seminar provided live demonstrations of two key instruments for particle characterisation:
– Morphologi 4-ID (image analysis for particle size (1 to 1000 µm), shape and chemical ID) and

– Mastersizer 3000 (latest generation Laser Diffraction particle sizer plus Hydrosight imaging accessory)

Understanding the relative strengths of both technologies is the key to using them appropriately and productively. Laser diffraction (ie, Mastersizer) provides fast, reliable measurement of particle size for a very wide range of sample types. Image analysis (ie. Morphologi 4) provides high resolution particle size and shape information. With the option of adding Raman spectroscopy the Morphologi system is a very powerful tool that can not only give size and shape information but also chemical identification of unknown particulates.

Q-Sense QCM-D and DFind Seminar 2019

ATA Scientific would like to thank all those that participated in our special Q-Sense user-training seminar held 8-12 April, 2019.

Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane

This seminar was aimed to provide new and existing users of Q-Sense instruments with the essential skills and to expand knowledge on QCM-D data analysis. It included both theory and hands-on training. An introduction to the principles of QCM-D technology was discussed, with tips and tricks on how to generate quality data and maintain your instrument. An introduction to the new DFind software (for modelling and data analysis) was presented including how to work with Dfind to extract as much information from your raw data, as possible. The training session gave users the opportunity to discuss specific experimental set-up and data handling in a group session with our QCM-D specialists from Biolin Scientific (Gabriel Ohlsson and Tord Eriksson).
