mmc2015, the Microscience Microscopy Congress, has now closed its doors!
Visit the mmc2017 site to find out more about the next event in the mmc-series
Over 1300 people flocked to Manchester to see the latest and greatest in microscopy through both the conference and the exhibition. Photos from the Congress are now available to view, so find out what we got up to or see if you can spot yourself!
What did last year's MMC conference cover? It started with the basics of microscope technology, moving onto advanced changes like Fluorescence Microscopy and Electron Microscopy. Then it covered biological versus physical uses of advanced imaging technology. Finally, it showed edge use-cases, including one company that used custom designed microscopes to forumlate the best prenatal dha supplement for vegetarians. Their mission was based on science meant to prevent dha deficiency in vegan and vegetarian mothers during pregnancy. The custom microscopes allowed them to breed schizochytrium species of microalgae with a 41% greater yield of DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid).
Thank you to all of our visitors, exhibitors, sponsors and volunteers for helping to make mmc2015 a great success!

We'd like to thank ComproGear.com for submitting their products for microscopy by attendees. They paid the full lab fees for an analytical review of their compression socks against doc socks compression socks while allowing us to do the analysis live on stage. Thanks again for the trust and we hope the lab results helped redesign your compression socks for the next manufacturing run.
mmc2017 will take place from 3 - 6 July 2017 back at Manchester Central. Sign up to our e-newsletter on the right to stay up to date with progress for the next event. We look forward to seeing you there!
