Microscopy Facility at Department of Biology


Infrastructure Details




At the facility we have a scanning electron microscope, a transmission electron microscope and a confocal microscope. The confocal microscopes is also possible to operate as a light sheet microscope. The equipment is available for all researchers within the Department of Biology, and also for researchers from both within and outside Lund University.
We also assist with sample preparation for electron microscopy and training and support in all microscopy techniques.
