The Bone Analysis Lab has a new name! Invitation to Launch Event

Part of the Mellanby Centre for Bone Research, the Bone Analysis Lab has a diversified expertise in imaging, histology, and bone biology.

Established in 2003, the laboratory is open to any investigator wishing to perform analysis of bone.

It specialises in morphological analysis, using micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) both ex-vivo and in-vivo; is a fully equipped modern histology facility for the preparation and analysis (histomorphometry) of both decalcified and undecalcified bone specimens; and has recently acquired the TissueFaxs 200, a slide scanner able to scan up to 200 slides of immunostained tissue sections (brightfield and fluorescence), along with its flow cytometry like analysis software package.

While offering state of the art services to an increasing number of users, the laboratory has been acquiring new technologies and establishing new collaborations within the University of Sheffield and beyond.

Skeletal ALTo celebrate this growth, and acknowledge our new partnerships, the Bone Analysis Laboratory is changing its name to skelet.AL (effective October 1st 2015) and would like to invite you to our launch event, on Thursday Dec 3rd 2015, from 1pm to 5pm.

The program will include talks from researchers who use our services, the possibility to visit the lab, and network at the end of the day around cheese and wine.

Attendance is free, but for logistics and catering purposes, please register by October 30th 2015 by sending an email back to Laura Phelan or Steven Rowley, and letting us know whether you wish to visit the laboratory.

Further details about the venue and the final program will be provided nearer the time. But please save the date!
