Welcome

October 2022 : MRI is involved in "En quête de Sciences" organised by the CNRS Occitanie Est delegation
On 13 and 14 October, MRI welcomed high school students in the "photography" professional section and hairdressing apprentices. On Saturday 15 October, the campus was open to the general public. It is always a great moment of sharing! We showed them cell division under a microscope!

Thanks to our pro section "photography" for their pictures!

July 2022 : upgrade of the CSU-X1 spinning disk - MRI-CRBM facility
We changed 1) the 4 lasers, they are 5 to 10 times more powerful than the old ones, 2) the camera by a sCMOS Prime95B with a smaller pixel size than the previous one, 3) the iQ3 software by the Inscoper software and 4) a module (Inscoper module) that controls all the components of the microscope to increase the acquisition speed. The detailed configuration is available on the MRI-CRBM web page.

July 2022 : A new LSM980-Airyscan2 confocal microscope - MRI-IGH facility
This microscope replaces the confocal LSM780 on the IGH facility. Beyond the classical confocal microscopy, the Airyscan module allows an improvement of resolution, sensitivity and or acquisition speed.

June 2022 : A new imaging flow cytometer "Imagestream X (ISX)" - MRI-IGMM facility
This device is a combination of a flow cytometer and a microscope. The ISX will display an image of your cell and allow the calculation of a number of statistical parameters related to cell size, shape, texture, fluorescence location and intensity. The image processing software, IDEAS, offers free and/or wizard-based analysis for certain applications. The main features of our instrument are described on the MRI-IGMM web page.

June 15-17, 2022 : Workshop "L'apprentissage automatique ("machine learning") appliqué à l'analyse d'images biologiques"
TRAINING CANCELLED DUE TO LACK OF REGISTRATIONS. The MRI platform offers training to understand and apply machine learning methods for biological image analysis using open source software.

All the informations are on the Biocampus website

 

May 2022 : A new LSM980-Airyscan2 confocal microscope - MRI-CRBM facility
The SP5 confocal microscope was replaced by a Zeiss LSM980 confocal microscope. This microscope is equipped with the Airyscan 2 module for high resolution and the Multiplex mode for faster scanning. This microscope is controlled by Zen blue. The detailed configuration can be found on the MRI-CRBM webpage.

May 18-20, 2022 : Workshop "Programmation de macros avec ImageJ"
The MRI platform offers training to learn how to write scripts in Image J that automate many image processing and analysis tasks

All the informations are on the Biocampus website

 

May 2022 : A new Olympus SORA spinning disk - MRI-CRBM facility
This is a spinning disk, with 4 excitation lasers (405, 488, 561, 640nm), an Olympus IX83 inverted microscope, a z-drift compensation module, 6 objectives (including a 30x NA 1.05 WD 0.73 silicon objective and a 60x NA 1.3, WD 0.3 mm silicon objective for live cell imaging and long working distances), and a Fusion BT Hamamatsu back-illuminated sCMOS camera. The spinning unit is a Yokogawa W1, coupled to a SoRa disk for high resolution imaging (1.4x gain, more info here: https://www.olympus-lifescience.com/fr/super-resolution/spinsr10/). Temperature and CO2 are controlled.

A FRAP photoactivation module with two independent 405 and 488nm lasers allows photo-manipulation experiments.
