Geraint attained a Ph.D. in Neuroscience in 1997 from the University of Southampton, UK, after which he continued in neuroscience with a postdoctoral position at the University of Warwick, UK. Having developed an interest in microscopy, he moved to the University of Liverpool, UK, to work in the laboratory of Michael White, focusing on intracellular signaling and gene expression through live-cell imaging. Geraint eventually pursued a commercial career in microscopy. He joined Andor Technology in 2009, where he is now Business Manager for Life Science Cameras and Microscopy Systems exploring new scientific markets and technology development opportunities.
The new Andor Benchtop Confocal, the BC43, is a revolutionary, small footprint confocal that allows all laboratories in biomedical sciences, industry or elsewhere, access to an easy-to-use high-quality multimodal confocal imaging system to suit their imaging needs.
Inside the BC43 is a high-speed confocal design delivering multi-parameter imaging at least 5 times faster, often higher, than conventional confocal technology. Consequently, the BC43 is a highly productive confocal solution for imaging large specimens, or large sample numbers, in multiple dimensions. You can reduce imaging from hours to minutes.
Designed with an effortless workflow for improved productivity, even novice users with minimal training can be capturing multidimensional experiments in less than an hour. Notably, with BC43, there is no need for a dark room; users can have it on the bench side-by-side with their experiments.
In this talk, we will give a technical overview of BC43 as well as show beautiful imaging to illustrate the applications of the new Andor Benchtop Confocal.
