Advanced microscopy core facility

(THE FACILITY WEB SIDES IS UNDER RECONSTRUCTION)
Advanced Microscopy Core Facility (AMCF) at the University of Tromsø (UiT) is the fusion product of pre-existing Bio-Imaging and Electron Microscopy core facilities.
You can visit us on level 8 and 7 in L-part of MH-building.

The platform provides several advanced light- and electron microscopes suitable for routine applications as well as specialized methods. The platform also provides users with access to licensed software for object-based image quantitation (Volocity) and deconvolution (Huygens).

Other instruments include a Biostation for timelapse imaging of cultured cells and a zoom microscope for imaging in model organisms (e.g. zebra fish). 

The Electron microscope (EM) machine park consists of 2 TEM- and 2 state of the art SEM-electron microscopes. Futher more the EM section has a  considerably instrument park to prepare specimens for the electron microscopes.

In addition the platform provides flow cytometry (Fortessa, 4 lasers) and cell sorting facilities (Aria 1 with 3 lasers and Aria 3 with 4 lasers.

AMCF  hosts every second year a correlative light/electron microscopy (CLEM) PhD course (MBI-8003), as part of the MedIm national research school.

The core facility has a staff of specialists using the instruments in range of techniques and methods. We offer technical assistans if needed.
