BioImaging Core - Ghent platform

Recently Electron Microscopy (EM) has gone from 2D to 3D capabilities. At the Gent unit, we will elaborate on the technological advancements to develop 3D Correlative Light Electron Microscopy (CLEM). This unique technology that bridges the gap between EM and Light Microscopy (LM) will be
a real game changer for cell biology research.

In addition to CLEM, the unit is at the forefront of advanced imaging techniques with a high resolution confocal microscope and two scanning electron microscopes, equipped for serial block face imaging. In addition, there is a computing center and a wet lab for specimen preparation.
