Microscopy and Imaging

The Microscopy and Imaging Core Facility is equipped with optical microscopes to acquire images or videos of various live or fixed samples. Several detection systems allow these acquisitions to be made. In addition, different software programs are used to process the acquired images and thus obtain digital data such as cell quantities, relative fluorescence intensities, surface measurements, displacement speeds, etc. The staff of the Microscopy and Imaging Core Facility rely on obtaining uniform images and videos whose quality allows their analysis by automatic computer programs. Finally, the Microscopy and Imaging Core Facility develops various customized analysis tools.
