Cellular and Molecular Imaging Core Facility (CMIC)

Overview of Services

CMIC offers the combination of instruments and competence that you need to image biological processes from tissue level down to single cell-level and even on an ultrastructural level resolving single proteins. 

 

CMIC is a collaboration of three different laboratories:

  • Electron microscopy lab
  • Histology lab
  • Superresolution-, live cell- and high throughput imaging lab

Prices

From January 2015, CMIC has to adjust all prices based on the total costs.
 
More information and the new price list is available here:
 
 
Please check with us for the amount of own effort (egeninnsats) that applies.
 

Services

We offer a broad range of services including sample preparation for light and electron microscopy, cryotechniques, a variety of techniques in immunohisto- and cytochemistry, in situ hybridization, training in construction of tissue micro array, antibody conjugates and fluorescent constructs for live cell imaging.
