Laboratory for High-Resolution Cell Bio-imaging

Description:

The Laboratory for High-Resolution Cell Bio-Imaging aims to develop scientific research but is also able to provide support to companies and research groups in its R&D projects. This lab offers access to cutting edge techniques and equipments, including a confocal microscope, a fluorescence microscope (both allowing live cell imaging), a transmission electron microscope (TEM), a cryostat for sectioning of biological samples in OCT and a ultramicrotome with a cryogenic unit for sectioning of frozen samples. The team has accumulated vast know-how and expertise on the area and can provide consulting services. Located in the University of Coimbra, this laboratory is part of the National Network of Electron Microscopy.

The  Laboratory for High-Resolution Cell Bio-Imaging offers access to techniques such as: (i) fluorescence, confocal and electron microscopy that can be applied in experiments of co-localization of proteins by immunofluorescence, experiments of live cell imaging and in vivo protein trafficking  (i.e. by the use of fluorescent tags like GFP, mCherry, YFP),  fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP), 3D reconstruction (Z Stacks) of cellular structures/tissues, immunoEM and conventional EM; crio-sectioning and OCT sectioning.
