The ultra modern Manchester Central Convention Centre played host to MMC2014

Last week the Linkam team headed north to take part in the Microscience Microscopy Congress exhibition (MMC2014) held at the Manchester Central Convention Centre.

The city - which is well known for its music scene and its football teams - played host to a different kind of show. Organised by the Royal Microscopical Society, it featured the largest exhibition of microscope and imaging equipment in Europe. 

Central to the event was a fascinating workshop schedule where delegates had the opportunity to learn about all the latest topics from life and physical sciences to light and electron microscopy.

One of these talks was held by our very own Dr Michael Schwertner who held an interactive workshop showcasing how the Linkam CMS196 can be used in the ever expanding field of Correlative EM and fluorescence microscopy (CLEM).

For Linkam, MMC2014 was a great success because it not only gave us an inside track on some of the newest techniques in the microscopy world, but it also gave us the chance to catch up with a few old friends who had travelled far to be a part of such a prestigious event.
