Hotel Description

Our center is designed as both a service unit and development platform for the imaging of biological molecules and living cells. All state-of-the-art equipments are available for researchers from within and outside the department. Furthermore we link to NL-BioImaging AM with a focus on biophysics nanoscopy (www.eurobioimaging.nl).

Expertise and Track Record

We have both an imaging center and a large cleanroom facility (Kavli Nanolab) for producing PDMS-based micro/nanofluidics or other nanostructured devices. In our department, we also have a strong Theory section to help out with modeling biological systems.
