The imaging facility at CRM provides support for light microscopy imaging and bio-image analysis to CRM staff and external users.

The facility offers a wide range of microscopes and imaging techniques:  stereo, widefield, confocal, and lightsheet microscopes. The facility offers two dedicated high-end workstations for bio-image processing and analysis. Our facility manager, Matthieu Vermeren, can assist CRM staff and visitors with from planning a project, experimental design, sample preparation, staining, selection and use of microscopes to image processing and analysis. The imaging facility is developing dynamically to meet ever-increasing scientific requirements.
