EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Novel Photonic Solutions for Microscopy
Online Event

Ever since its invention in 17th-century microscopy is empowering life-science research and discoveries. In turn, advances in optics and micro-optics, filters, sensors, lasers, photonic integrated circuits, enable new applications for microscopic techniques. In this meeting, we bring together the key companies developing microscopes and photonics components with the end-users to discuss the current technology trends and emerging applications.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.
