Default Course Fluid Preservation, November 20th-24th, 2017, Barcelona, Spain

Dear colleagues,

Transmitting Science is offering a new course: "Fluid Preservation".

INSTRUCTORS: Dr Simon Moore (Natural Sciences and Cutlery Historian, UK) and John E. Simmons (Museologica, USA).

DATES: November 20th-24th, 2017.

PLACE: Els Hostalets de Pierola, Barcelona (Spain).

More information:

In this course, conservator Simon Moore, assisted by John E. Simmons, will present a series of lectures, discussions, and supervised hands-on laboratory activities on the evaluation, conservation, and preservation of fluid-preserved specimens. Topics to be covered include the history of fluid preservation, histology and morphology of fluid preserved specimens, and techniques including narcotization, fixation and re-fixation, transfer between preservatives, fluid preservative options, identification of historic sealants, specimen repair, and how to work with historic and modern fluid preserved specimens. Participants will learn to cut, grind, and drill filler holes in glass; rehydrate desiccated specimens and remove air bubbles from them; mount specimens on glass backing plates; seal containers, cope with fungal and bacterial outbreaks, and work with transparencies. During the course, participants will become acquainted with the evaluation of a range of preservative fluids for zoological and botanical specimens, including preservation of colour in specimens.

Please feel free to distribute this information between your colleagues if you consider it appropriate.

With best regards
