The mission of the Advanced Light Microscopy (ALM) national unit is to give support with superresolution fluorescence microscopy for nanoscale biological visualisation (SIM, STED, STORM/PALM, ExM). In addition the unit support single molecule measurement and analysis with fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS/FCCS/FRET-FCS), and combined with superresolution for nanoscale dynamical studies (STED-FCS). Moreover, support with light-sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) allow users to image live and/or optically cleared larger samples at unprecedented volumetric speed with low phototoxity. Single cell ultra-fast volumetric imaging of biological processes at high-resolution is provided by lattice light-sheet microscopy (LLSM).
Support is done to all stages of the project including (pre)planning, sample optimization, fluorescent probe selection, image acquisition, and initial post-acquisition image processing.
Transfer of unique knowledge to individual researchers are supported nationally, including organization of workshops and courses in advanced fluorescence imaging and spectroscopy applications and method developments.
