A new tool to help researchers navigate their way to world-class microscopy and microanalysis capability has been launched at the Australian Conference of Microscopy and Microanalysis in Brisbane.
Developed by Intersect for the Australian Microscopy & Microanalysis Research Facility (AMMRF), the Technique Finder is the first of two main deliverables. The Technique Finder is a web application that enables AMMRF users to identify the techniques most suited to their research, based on a researcher-centric approach and terminology as opposed to instrument oriented jargon.
“The AMMRF offers a complete user experience involving stages of project registration, planning and training followed by data gathering, analysis, management and publication. Intersect is enabling improvement of this experience through the development of tools that enable researchers to identify, access and apply appropriate microscopy techniques quickly”, said the Executive Director of the AMMRF, Prof Simon Ringer.
This project is funded by the National eResearch Architecture Taskforce.
