IVIS Training Seminar
Four members of VIP attended a 2 day training seminar which focused on the technical application of the IVIS imaging system for preclinical imaging. The seminar was run by Dr Ronald Koop and Dr Marcus Salmon from Perkin Elmer. Training consisted of lectures and presentations detailing the concepts underlying in vivo optical imaging as well as possible applications of the IVIS system in preclinical research. Hands-on training was also provided for attendees where detailed demonstrations of the IVIS Lumina II and III systems were carried out over the course of a full afternoon. Attendees were shown how to correctly operate the IVIS as well as how experimental set-up should be approached. In depth training on the usage and operation of the IVIS software was also provided and all aspects of data acquisition and analysis were covered and discussed.
