Preliminary Programme


The best microscope in the world gives poor results if the preparation is lousy.

Ultramicrotomy is a widely adopted and versatile technique which can be utilized to prepare samples for a range of characterization methods.

Our highly trained and experienced specialists provide insights into the preparation of soft materials, with a primary focus on ultramicrotomy. Be a scientist, engineer or technician – you will profit from this course to solve your preparation problems. Our qualified staff will guide you step by step through the operation of ultramicrotomes during an intensive 3-day practical workshop – covering both room temperature and cryogenic applications. Test new developments for the best possible preparation of your samples.

We offer highly informative lectures, detailed discussions with experts in the field, and hands-on experience with various techniques. By the end of the course you will have the know-how to optimize the preparation of your samples.

In individual cases it is possible to bring your own sample, but it is necessary to send exact details about it and the specimen itself to us in the forefront. You will have the opportunity to prepare and analyze them on your own with professional help.

At FELMI-ZFE, scientific curiosity meets experience in ultramicrotomy – always at your service!
