Light Microscopy

The aim of the light microscopy facility is to accelerate biomedical research by providing access to advanced light microscopy and by sharing expertise about sample preparation, imaging modalities, data storage and image analysis.


In order to maintain the state-of-the-art level of the facility, we have an ongoing effort in microscopy related research. We also support a variety of projects with image analysis and quantification.
