The Microscopy Area is a research laboratory equipped with:

  • a laser scanning confocal microscope for fluorescence studies of cell systems, intact organisms and biological tissues;
  • an Olympus IX81 inverted microscope for the live-imaging microscopy technique;
  • a high resolution scanning electron microscope;
  • a transmission electron microscope for the ultrastructural analysis of biological systems;
  • the tools necessary for the preparation of samples for both scanning and transmission electron microscopy.
