Tissue Imaging Center: Imaging core facilities

Member of Oulu BioImaging (OBI)

Biocenter Oulu is offering image acquisition and processing services through a dedicated core facility set up. We have state-of-the art equipment for light and electron microscopy and optical projection tomography, located at the Biocenter Oulu laboratories in the Main Building of Medical Campus and in vivo imaging services at laboratory animal centre.

We can offer the following research activities as a service:

  1. Confocal, light sheet and widefield fluorescence microscopy
  2. Transmission and scanning electron microscopy and tomography
  3. Specimen preparation for light and electron microscopy
  4. Correlative light and electron microscopy
  5. OPT - optical projection tomography
  6. IVIS - in vivo fluorescence and luminescence imaging  
  7. Image processing and analysis

In this way it is easy for researchers not familiar with imaging to get acquainted with cell biological analyses and structural analyses of tissues at light and electron microscopic levels.
