Light Microscopy Core

Overview of Services


The LM core provides assistance in sample preparation, trouble-shooting, choosing the appropriate instruments, and in data analysis. Possibility for collaboration. Cell culture space to culture and manipulate cells before and between microscopic imaging is available.

Equipment and Technology:

  • Confocal microscopy: laser scanning and spinning disk
  • TIRF imaging, FRAP, FRET and FLIM measurements
  • Light sheet microscopy: high resolution 4D mesoscopic imaging
  • Motorized semi-automated histology microscopy
  • Multiphoton microscopy: imaging deep into thick samples
  • Optical Projection Tomography: 3D imaging of large samples up to cm size
  • Correlative light and electron microscopy with EM core
  • Open access for all microscopes and instruments after the user training (organized by request).

SERVICES :

  • Multicolor widefield and confocal imaging of fixed specimens
  • Time lapse imaging of living cells, organs, cysts, tubes, embryos...
  • Top stage incubators with temp, CO2 and O2 controlled environment
  • Protein dynamics in 3D environments and planar surfaces
  • Image analysis; renderings, reconstructions, measurements, trackings...
