The Microscience Microscopy Congress, mmc2017 is now only two weeks away and the free exhibition with its free training opportunities is set to be bigger and better than ever!

This year, the exhibition is 25% larger than in 2015 and will welcome nearly 30 new exhibitors including Nikon, Object Research Systems and Femtonics. With the industry giants all under one roof and many launching new products at the event, mmc2017 provides a great opportunity to view and find out more about some of the latest equipment to the market and compare the options available to you ahead of a big purchase.

With over 120 companies in total, you will also be able to meet with a wide range of companies offering add-ons, consumables and services which can help you obtain the most accurate and reliable results possible and increase efficiency in your lab. You can view the floorplan at

Beyond the exhibiting companies, mmc2017 will once again offer five daily programmes of free workshops thanks to the four commercial workshop areas and the Learning Zone within the exhibition hall.

The commercial workshops, presented by experts from exhibiting companies, will demonstrate a wide range of software, new equipment and solutions that these can enable in electron, optical and scanning probe microscopy as well as correlative microscopy. Titles include “Imaris Solutions for Big Data”, “SÆMIC: A Complete Solution for Correlative SEM-SPM” and “SRRF-Stream: A Real Time Approach to Super-Resolution Microscopy through Super Resolution Radial Fluctuations.”

The Learning Zone will offer a drop-in area to learn more about specific techniques and how they can best be applied including SEM, Confocal and, for the first time, Light Sheet Microscopy. Its Seminar Theatre will present half hour introductory talks into these areas as well and the chance to then follow up any queries on the range of equipment available to try on the Zone.

The British Measurement and Testing Association (BMTA) are joining mmc2017 for the first time on Thursday 6 July, hosting an “Optical Measurement in Industrial Inspection” seminar. This seminar, costing £60 incl. lunch and refreshments, will offer laboratory and test house managers the chance to find out more about optical, microscopic and SEM techniques used in materials inspection.
