Workshop on Gold Cluster Labeling and STEM Microscopy
Nanoprobes at Other Conferences
Microscopy & Microanalysis '98
Atlanta, GA; July 12 - 16, 1998
Nanoprobes sponsored a symposium on Recent Advances in Labeling where a presentation was given on results obtained with new types of combined fluorescent and metal cluster probes based on larger metal clusters and nanoparticles. Other speakers in this symposium described results obtained with gold cluster labels and combined fluorescent and gold probes.
Jim Hainfeld (President of Nanoprobes) and Rick Powell (Research Director) were also instructors for the Gold Labeling Workshop for half a day on Sunday, July 12. The workshop included colloidal gold labeling, gold cluster labeling, in situ detection and autometallography (silver enhancement), and the principles and practice of combined fluorescent and gold probes.
5th US-Japan Meeting of Histochemistry and Cytochemistry
San Diego, CA; July 23-26, 1998. We also sponsored a symposium on New Frontiers in Gold Labeling at this meeting, at 3:00 pm on Friday, July 24. This included a presentation by Jim Hainfeld.
14th International Congress on Electron Microscopy
Cancun, Mexico; August 31 - September 4, 1998
Jim Hainfeld described some recent results with Nanogold-NTA-Ni(II) at this meeting, as part of a symposium on Advances in Immuno-Electron Microscopy at 10:45 am on Monday, August 31.
6th International Conference on Molecular Morphology (IMMC)
Jim Hainfeld and Rick Powell gave presentations at the 6th International Conference on Molecular Morphology (IMMC) which was held at the University of Salzburg, October 5-9, 1998. Wednesday, October 7 was designated the "Golden Day" and will include both our presentations.
It is hoped that another gold cluster labeling workshop will be organized in the future. Keep an eye on our web site for details. In the meantime, here are a couple of pics from the first one...
