Join us at the 57th Congress of the Microscopy Society of Southern Africa


Microscopy Society of Southern Africa 57th Congress (MSSA 2022)

The Microscopy Society of Southern Africa for the 57th Congress (MSSA 2022) will be hosted by the University of the Witwatersrand. The theme for the conference will be " Microscopy is FUN "

The mission of the Microscopy Society of Southern Africa is to promote and develop microscopy as well as associated techniques at all levels in the Southern African region.
MSSA hosts biennial meetings inviting students, microscopists, researchers, and industrial partners to offer a platform to:

  •  Interact and network within all disciplines of science and engineering through microscopy,
  • Engage on the latest technological developments in light, electron and laser microscopy,
  • Encourage and expand knowledge in microscopy technologies through our technical forum and exhibition lounges and workshops,
  • Provide opportunities for the trade and microscopist interactions, enabling information sourcing on applications and/or purchases, and
  • Most importantly, present and share research, ideas and experiences with fellow delegates.

Oxford Instruments NanoAnalysis will be exhibiting its latest SEM product innovations at the exhibition. Stop by our booth and have a chat with our expert!

Oxford Instruments Electron Microscopy products enable you to accurately analyse and characterise materials down to the nanoscale level more rapidly, by combining superior detection and analysis instruments with software platforms that interpret the resulting data in the context of your research.

Supported by our AZtec software platform our EDS detectors give you accurate compositional analysis in real time, while our WDS quantifies minor and trace elements with unmatched speed and flexibility.

For microstructural detail, the new Symmetry S3 EBSD detectors give unrivalled acquisition speeds, pattern resolution and sensitivity. The resulting certainty allows you to innovate with confidence and redefine the Art of the Possible.

Drop by our booth, to discuss Oxford Instruments’ solutions for your research needs. We're looking forward to meeting you at the event and discussing your current work and workflows with you.
