Wide-field microscopy

Several standard wide-field epifluorescence microscopes (upright or inverted) are available at the GIGA Cell Imaging core facility, enabling acquisition of bright-field, phase contrast, DIC or fluorescent images.

Confocal microscopy

Our confocal microscopes offer several advantages over conventional wide-field microscopes: greater control of depth of field, elimination of background information away from the focal plane and collection of serial optical sections from thick specimens.

High content microscopy

High-content screening (HCS) allows automated image acquisition and analysis to simultaneously measure of fluorescence intensity, kinetics, and morphology in living or fixed cells.

Light-sheet microscopy

Light-sheet microscopes illuminate samples with a thin sheet of light, and the emitted fluorescence is then collected at 90° by a wide-field detection system.

Image treatment and analysis

The most important rule to remember for image analysis is: if you put garbage in, you get garbage out! For this reason we strongly advise researchers to discuss their experimental design before acquiring their images.
