June 2021 : A new light Sheet Macroscope for cleared large samples - MRI-IGH facility
This new fluorescence imaging system is an UltraMicroscope Blaze from Miltenyi Lavision Biotek. It is compatible with all clearing solutions [DBE, Clarity, SeeDB, iDisco, ECI, 3Disco, uDisco…] and allows imaging of several samples sequentially or large samples thanks to its large imaging chamber. It is equipped with a 2X lens (NA 0.5) with zoom (0.63 to 6.3), three excitation wavelengths 488, 561, 640nm and a sCMOS camera.

May 2021 : A new Thunder widefield microscope - MRI-CRBM facility
This new upright widefield microscopes from Leica disposes an integrated debluring algorithm coupled to a deconvolution process (the deconvolution is not mandatory). It thus offers a high contrast, especially useful for thick samples (thicker than a cell layer).

May 4-5-6, 2021 : On-line training "Macro programming with ImageJ"
The MRI platform is experimenting for the first time with a remote BioCampus workshop which aims to learn macro programming with the free image analysis software ImageJ.

Thanks to Volker and Leslie for maintaining this training during this period of lockdown

 

April 2021 : New MRI Management software: CFMS
The MRI facility has put into production its new facility management software called Core Facility Management System (CFMS). CFMS offers to each MRI engineer user management tools, user training follow-ups as well as automatically informing users of any equipment failures. Each user can now access their account and the reservation site via the address https://cfms.mri.cnrs.fr.

Thanks to the MRI IT team for developing this software

 

March 2021 : Welcome to Christophe QUENETTE
Christophe joins MRI-NET on a fixed-term contract as IT developer. He will work with Joanna El Husseini on the Core Facility Management System that MRI develops. Joanna will leave us end of May and Christophe will continue to develop and adapt this web application to our needs.

Chrsistophe, Welcome among the MRI engineers staff!

 

15-20th of March 2021 : Zeiss Lattice Light Sheet Workshop
Zeiss announces its new lattice light sheet. This is a technology that MRI has been interested in for several years. Zeiss will be doing a webinar on March 1 and 2 at 2 p.m. and will be at the MRI-CRBM set for a demonstration from March 15 to 20, the goal being to test it on your own samples.

MRI is happy to be one of the 2 sites in France to test this new equipment!

 

February 2021 : Welcome to Cécile DEJOU
Cécile obtained an INSERM permanent position to be the manager of the MRI-IRCM flow cytometry facility. She arrived the 1rst of februray and you can contact her very soon for all questions relative to her facility. This INSERM position was obtained by the IRCM institute and the support of Biocampus director. Thank you to all of you!

Cécile, Welcome among the MRI engineers staff!

 

December 2020 : Welcome to Stéphane LABORIE
Stéphane obtained a CNRS permanent position in the MRI IT service. It is with pleasure that we see him back after almost 5 years of absence. This time, for sure, he stays. This CNRS position was obtained thanks to BioCampus and the support of many unit directors. Thank you to all of you!

Stéphane, Welcome among the MRI engineers staff!

 

November 2020 : Welcome to Khady MANGANE
Khady joins MRI on a fixed-term contract to take over the slide scanner activity. She is involved in a project developed between the Monptellier DNA Combing (MDC, BioCampus facility), MRI and the company Innopsys from Carbone. This project is funded by the PRRI regional call for projects. She will also work part-time at the INM to take care of the 2 slide scanners Nanozoomer and Axioscan.

Khady, Welcome among the MRI engineers staff!

 

Novembre 2020 : 2 BioCampus-MRI workshops cancelled
The workshops "L'apprentissage automatique (machine learning) appliqué à l'analyse d'images biologiques" and "Les bases du logiciel FlowJo" are cancelled due to current sanitary conditions.

 

September 2020 : Restart of BioCampus-MRI Workshops
The training organised by MRI are scheduled as soon as end of september. The new dates are

28th of september-1rst of october: Microscopie à épi-fluorescence et microscopie confocale: de la base à la pratique

12-14th of october: Les bases du logiciel ImageJ

July 2020 : Permanent closure of the MRI-DSBS cytometry facility
MRI decided to close the flow cytometry MRI-DSBS physically located in the LPHI UMR after discussion with the different people concerned. For those familiar with the CANTO cytometer, we remind you that you have access to this same type of equipment at the MRI-IGMM and MRI-IRMB cytometry facilities. Please, do not hesitate to contact these facilities. We warmly thank Yann Bordat for his investment in MRI platform, it is with regret that we see him starting new adventures. We wish him success and fulfillment.

 

June 2020 : Restart training for autonomies
The MRI facilities restart the training to acquire autonomy on instruments. The training will be individual and wearing a mask. The trainer and the trainee should respect the distance of 1 meter as much as possible. Please contact the MRI engineers to fix a training date.

Most of the MRI facilities are allowed to welcome external users according to specific rules of the campus, please feel free to contact the engineers.
