Equipment at the Core Facility for Integrated Microscopy

CFIM is a core facility that integrates Electron and Light microscopy. Our vision is that CFIM will allow users to think broadly and select the best possible instrument(s), light and/or electron microscope(s), to provide detailed answers to their scientific questions at the highest resolution.

Light Microscopes

The light microscopes at CFIM can be used for wide field fluorescence microscopy, Confocal microscopy (z-sectioning of fixed or living specimens), FRET, FRAP, FLIP and FLIM experiments, Photoactivation and photoconversion experiments, Spectral imaging and advanced unmixing of emission spectra, Total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy, Integrated spectral fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) to analyze single molecule dynamics and Raster Image Correlation Spectroscopy (RICS).

Electron Microscopes

The electron microscopes at CFIM can be used for standard TEM and SEM imaging, 3D reconstruction of TEM images, unattended TEM sample preparation, cross-sectioning (FIB SEM) and single particle analysis and tomography analysis.

Additional equipment

CFIM offers also other equipment useful for sample preparation such as a cryostat.

Post Processing and analysis computers

Six computers can be booked for analysis purposes. Different softwares like Zen, Autoquant, iTEM, Amira...

EM and LM sample preparation

CFIM lab can help you prepare your samples for Electron microscopy. See the details here. In addition, the histology lab head by Steen Seier Poulsen offers also some sample prepaparation for light microscopy samples.
