Workshop Overview

Welcome to the MMI Workshop “Master the Art of Single-Cell Isolation” as part of UNM's Microscopy Open House! Our free immersive experience is designed to provide participants with hands-on exposure to MMI's cutting-edge technologies, revolutionizing single-cell isolation. Throughout the workshop, attendees will have the unique opportunity to explore and operate MMI's advanced instruments, including the MMI CellCut Laser Microdissection System, WholeSlide Scanner CellScan, and CellDetector, an artificial intelligence analysis software that automatically detects and counts cells from any tissue.
