Optical Microscopy Open House at MCL

Description

MCL has recently installed two brand new optical microscopes that greatly enhance our capabilities. On Wednesday, March 13th MCL is having an open house to introduce these capabilities to the user community. This open house will include a brief technical presentation on the microscopes as well as demonstrations. If you have samples that you would like to be part of these demonstrations please contact Katherine Crispin (kcrispin@psu.edu).
