Advanced Light microscopy

Microscopes are instruments designed to produce magnified visual or photographic images of objects too small to be seen with the naked eye. The microscope must accomplish three tasks: produce a magnified image of the specimen, separate the details in the image, and render the details visible to the human eye or camera. (

Light Microscopy Techniques include:

  • Live cell imaging, Fluorescence microscopy, Wide Field microscopy
  • Confocal laser scanning microscopy, Spinning disc microscopy
  • Cellular phenotyping, High-content imaging
  • Non-linear, multi-photon imaging, CARS Raman-Imaging

Please contact CTPN if you are interested in developing a research plan/grant proposal/business case which involves imaging techniques. We will put you in contact with the relevant researchers & core platforms to discuss and support your ideas.
