Cellular & Molecular Imaging Core Facility (CMIC)

We offer the combination of instruments and competence that you need to image biological processes from tissue level (histological studies) down to single cell-level and even on an ultrastructural level resolving single proteins. Our services include immunohistochemistry, imaging of fixed tissue or cells and live cells and processing and analysis of these images.

Our labs

CMIC is a collaboration between three different laboratories:
