IGSS Workshops


The objective of the course is to provide researchers with the opportunity to learn the theory and practice of immunogold labeling. Participants will process their own samples under the expert guidance of our tutors, who are experts in Immuno Gold Silver Staining techniques.

During a 3 day training the theoretical and practical aspects of the most up-to-date methods and applications will be dealt with both for light and electron microscopy. The set-up now also includes pre-embedding labeling.

Preferentially participants work with their own specimens and primary antibodies so that applicability and advantages of the Immuno Gold Silver Staining technique are maximally exploited by each individual participant. Personal attention provides for optimum broadening of knowledge which is of permanent advantage in individual daily work situations in terms of time savings and improvements.

Reactions of participants:
"We are very enthusiastic and will most certainly persue this method!"
 "The time for personal advice was excellent!"
"An abundance of practical info, built on the necessary theoretical background!"
