Workshop on Recent Advances and Applications of Laser Capture Microdissection

A Free Web Event
Available on Demand Now

Since its introduction in 1996, laser capture microdissection (LCM) has emerged as an important technique for isolation of specific subsets of cells from complex tissues or other biological samples. Cellular material isolated by LCM is often used in downstream applications including PCR, microarray analysis, and sequencing. Several recent advances in LCM approaches have enhanced and expanded the range of these applications even further. In this web-based workshop, an overview of LCM will be provided along with descriptions and discussions of several recent LCM technology advances.

Attendees will:

  • Learn about the development and evolution of LCM approaches, including common applications and troubleshooting tips
  • Gain valuable insights into new developments in LCM technology, including the development of expression microdissection techniques
  • Engage in a discussion/question and answer session with a panel of LCM experts
