Cell and Tissue Imaging Unit

Research group

Our imaging core facility provides the instruments to image biological processes from tissues to single cells and subcellular molecular kinetics with both conventional and high-throughput methods.

We offer personal user training and support for imaging of fixed or live tissues or cells, including consultation on experimental set up, sample preparation and image processing and analysis. The services include histology laboratory equipped with modern devices and services.
