Centre personnel, laboratories and microscopes were on display at Macquarie University, Wednesday November 23rd, as guests from industry partner Olympus Australia took time out of their busy schedules to visit and to explore the latest in imaging developments taking place at the CNBP.
Hosted by CNBP node leader Prof Jim Piper and CNBP Associate Investigator Dr Yiqing Lu, Olympus Australia’s Kim Everuss (Sales Manager, MIS), Jian Shen (Marketing Manager, MIS), Chunsong Yan (Customer Experience Service Manager) and Clare Kelly (Product Manager specialising in confocal microscopy) were shown the latest in CNBP research, spoke with CNBP researchers and actively inspected tools and techniques related to the Centre’s luminescence related microscopy activity. Of particular focus was Centre work on a ‘plug and play’ time-gated imaging module that could be easily linked to current Olympus microscope setups.
Presentations from CNBP researchers also took place during the visit, outlining biological applications including biomedical diagnostics and drug delivery and leading edge research in the biology of pain.
Prof Jim Piper noted that the visit further cemented the fantastic relationship between the two organisations and that he looked forward to working closely with Olympus Australia with a view to facilitating industry-research benefits for both parties.
