The microscopy and imaging core facility offers FMI scientists and collaborators a variety of high-end light and electron microscopes and cutting-edge imaging software and analysis tools.

Our main goals are to:

•  Provide access to high-end acquisition and analysis workstations

•  Maintain instruments and workstations to ensure quality and efficiency

•  Train scientists to make sure hardware and software are used at the highest possible level

•  Maintain an institute-wide image database for better and safer archiving of all images or image-related documents

•  Link to other sites to make usage of the know-how among the Swiss, European or worldwide network of microscopy and imaging
