Kavli Nanolab Imaging Centre
From diffraction limited, to super resolution; From prolonged stable imaging to lifetime measurements; From single molecules to whole cells- we are here to help you setting up the optimal experiments in minimal time and maximal reproducibility.
Why Optical Microscopy?
Optical microscopy is a useful tool in various research fields. For life science research, it enables selective labelling of specific targets, to track their spatial organization and/or time dependence, in a non-destructive manner. Breaching resolution limits, either in the physics of imaging, sample labelling, or image analysis contribute to the size and accuracy of the information derived.
In the department of Bionanoscience, we explore life at the nanoscale, to unravel the sophisticated mechanisms in which the basic building blocks in cells work together. Towards this, we need to connect information at the resolution of single molecules to their native conditions within cellular or tissue architecture.
The Kavli Imaging centre (KNIC) offers imaging modalities that cover the spatial and temporal resolutions required to answer these questions.
