Nikon Instruments Partners With Koshland Science Museum to Create the Museum's First-Ever 'Microbe Lab'
Date:1/15/2008

be Lab" will be open to the general public on Saturday, January 19. There will be free admission and hands on activities from noon to 6:00 p.m. The day will include learning about ways to control the spread of infectious diseases by participating in a simulation that shows how quickly a disease can spread as well as hands-on activities with the Coolscope.

The Nikon Coolscope is a standalone digital microscope system that requires only a computer mouse and a monitor/projector to begin exploring specimen slides.

The Infectious Disease exhibit features interactive displays providing a rarely seen view of the microbial world. The exhibit was made possible by a Science Education Partnership (SEPA) grant from the National Center for Research Resources, a component of the National Institutes of Health.
