Training at the BIOP

Microscopy Training

To get access to the instruments of the BIOP, you must fill out our microscopy request form:

(For image processing training, see at the end of this page)

BIOP Training Request Form

After validation by the BIOP and your group leader, a meeting with a BIOP staff member (usually Arne Seitz the head of the PT-BIOP) is obligatory in order to discuss the scientific needs in details. You will receive an email suggesting a date, usually one week after the form was filled out.

It is also possible to pass by in room AI 0 140 and make an appointment directly. Throughout the discussion, it will be defined which microscopes to use and whom you should contact for the training session.

In Summary:

  1. Request Form.
  2. Discussion.
  3. Training Appointment.
  4. Training.

Please stick to this workflow as it turned out to be very efficient for the potential users and the BIOP staff as well.

Computers / Software Training

QuPath Trainings

QuPath Segmentation Results

If you are working with whole slide images (WSI) from our Olympus VS120 slide scanners (for example), the BIOP offers training for the Open Source QuPath Quantitative Pathology software most Wednesdays at 13h00.
Inscription is mandatory and training takes place via ZOOM.

QuPath Training Registration

This training also covers how to migrate older QuPath 0.1.x projects to QuPath 0.3.x.

This migration highly recommended, as it enables for a much simplified experience in data sharing for your future publications and collaborations with colleagues. 

QuPath Resources

If you want to see QuPath in action and/or learn at your own pace, here is some relevant material to get you started. 

Meet The Analysts

The BIOP has an open door policy regarding Image Analysis. You can either contact our Analysts or drop-by in AI 0 140 for a discussion. In view of the current situation, an initial contact via email is preferred.
