About BCO Tissue Imaging Center:

Biocenter Oulu is offering image acquisition and analysis services through light and electron microscopy core facilities. BCO-TIC serves primarily researchers at the University of Oulu and other academic institutions, but also commercial and non-academic users. 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 the laboratory animal centre.

We can offer the following research activities as a service:

  1. Confocal, light sheet,multiphoton 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. Tissue optical clearing
  7. IVIS - in vivo fluorescence and luminescence imaging  
  8. Image processing and analysis
