3D Cell Explorer competition
Nanolive is inviting researchers with an interest in 3D live cell imaging to submit to us a short research proposal to enter a competition to win a free 6-month loan of one of our 3D Cell Explorer microscopes. Proposals should focus on non-fluorescence based imaging that will benefit from the unique strengths of the 3D Cell Explorer microscope.
- The competition prize is a 6-month loan of a Nanolive 3D Cell Explorer holotomographic microscope (this is the Non-Fluorescence unit) with expected delivery date January/February 2019.
- This competition is reserved to academic and nonprofit projects.
- Each submission needs to be supported by a named departmental head (PI).
- No purchase is necessary to enter or win.
- Each laboratory may submit one proposal for judging.
- Entries will be judged on:
- Innovative use of the technology
- Expected impact in the research field
- Informational Content (quality of the proposal)
- Technical Proficiency
- Entries must be received no later than November 30th, 2018.
