Microscope Workshop Level 2
June 26 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm PDT$200 – $350
This three-hour workshop is designed for intermediate to advanced levels. We strongly recommend bringing your own microscope to the class and doing the Level 1 Microscope Workshop before Level 2. Topics includes:
- Techniques used to detect and identify microbes: Wet mounts, SDPC, spread plates, streak plates and serial dilution, viability via methylene blue staining and cell count via hemocytometer
- Discussion of winemaking tools available for contaminated wines
- Identification of sediments and hazes
- Practical microbe identification and debris-laden samples
These hands-on classes will be limited to 12 people in order for each participant to receive individual attention to further their knowledge of microbiological techniques, microscope maintenance, and microbe identification.
