WG 14 - Objectives

A stable environment is crucial to operate state of the art microscopes. Commercial instruments are designed to operate under specific room environment parameters, including temperature, humidity, vibration, dust, and electrical/electromagnetic or acoustical noise. 

It is important to adhere to these specifications to ensure accurate and reproducible results. Currently, it is unclear for the light microscopy community how to accurately and routinely measure these parameters and relate own measurements with the required specifications. 

WG14 aims to establish measurement protocols for light microscopy room requirements. Our initial goal will be to develop protocols for measuring temperature at key locations in the room and at the microscope.
