Bioimaging Facility

Facility Manager: José Rino, PhD.


The BioImaging Facility is a core microscopy facility that provides scientific know-how and expertise in using advanced light microscopy methods in research. The unit assists in project planning and experiment design, provides advice on sample preparation, trains users in microscopy and provides support in image analysis and processing. The unit has vast expertise in functional imaging techniques in living cells and is equipped with 1 spinning disk and 2 inverted point-scanning confocal microscopes prepared for live cell imaging, 1 upright line-scanning confocal microscope for intravital imaging, 1 inverted widefield microscope with motorized stage, 2 upright widefield and 2 fluorescence stereo microscopes and other imaging resources such as a brightfield microscope and a bioluminescent imaging system, all with CCD or cooled CCD cameras. The BioImaging systems are available for trained researchers 7 days a week and 24 h per day.
