Pick your favorite time slot (if you need more time for long term experiments or in case you want to screen many samples contact:


Long Term Live Imaging of Mouse Embryonic Stem Cells for 15 hours

Exact Time schedule

  • Tue, 9 am: Talk “Holotomographic microscopy for label-free 3D live cell imaging”
  • Tue, 10 am: For the demo participants: short movie on the Software Steve
  • Tue, 11 am – Thu, 18 pm: Demo of the holotomographic micrsoscope with your own samples, according to schedule 

Preparing your samples for the demo
