Welcome to the Microscopy Platform

The LBIC microscopy platform provides full sample preparation service for electron microscopy (fixation, staining, embedding, sectioning, etc.) and can advise users in preparation of samples for light microscopy. Users receive instrument training after which they are allowed to use the systems independently. Imaging of samples can also be done with full support from our staff.

The microscopy platform provides assistance with image analysis and visualization. All microscopy users have access to the image analysis software Arivis Vision 4D. Contact Jonas [dot] ahlstedt [at] med [dot] lu [dot] se for help with image analysis and Arivis training.
