Integrated Light Microscopy Core

Remote Work Resources

Remote Image Processing

Christine created some instructions for connecting to Core workstations remotely.  Choose Windows or Mac depending on your home computer.

Contact a Technical Director and we can provide remote access to our servers, the Imaris workstation (Imaris, ImageJ/Fiji) and the Arivis workstation (Arivis, Leica LAS X offline, ImageJ/Fiji).

We continue to get emails with lists of online classes, webinars and meetings on various topics.  Many of these will be / are already archived for on-demand viewing, so if you miss the live showing you can still “register” and view!

We’ll update these lists as we get more links.  If you have one our community would like, feel free to share via email and we’ll post.
