Technologies

Access to imaging technologies and expertise in the National Microscopy Infrastructure is provided by the five NMI Nodes. The Nodes offer a powerful portfolio of different state-of-the-art technologies in the fields of biological imaging. Each Node brings in a different combination of technologies as well as their expertise with distinct applications and methods.

Multimodal microscopy

Multimodal assimilation of technologies provides complementary and often unique information, spatial, structural, biochemical and biophysical details from the same target sample.

Super-resolution Structured illumination microscopy (SIM)

SIM microscopy system can produce twice the resolution of conventional optical microscopes

Single molecule localization microsopy

Within the NMI infrastructure we have the equipment and experience to performe single molecule localization microscopy with both PALM and STORM.

STED – Stimulated emission depletion  microscopy

At the NMI infrastructure we have the equipment and experience to perform STED in a diversity of sample preparations.

Light sheet microscopy

Permits optical sectioning of large samples, with little to no phototoxicity or photobleaching and high temporal resolution.

Lattice Light sheet microscopy

Volumetric imaging with high resolution, minimal exposure and phototoxicity, 4D over very long times.

CLEM – Correlative light electron microscopy

Equipment and experience to perform CLEM using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electon microscopy (SEM) 

CLM-AFM – Correlative Light and Atomic Force Microscopy 

Equipment and experience to perform CLM-AFM 

Cryo electron microscopy

Equipment and experience to perform Cryo EM.

FCS/FCCS – Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy

Measures diffusion coefficients and concentrations of fluorescent molecules.

IVM – Intravital microscopy

NMI offer a broad range of intravital microscopy applications with multi- and/or single-photon microscopy and FLIM.

BioImage Analysis

Support and training in state-of-the-art image analysis.
