Hotel Description

The Erasmus Optical Imaging Centre (OIC) has been operational since 2004. Currently, we operate more than 15 advanced imaging systems, including super-resolution, confocal, TIRF, and laser-microdissection microscopes.
The OIC has been at the forefront in the development of live-cell confocal microscopy and funtional imaging. (FRAP, FRET, FCS). Our centre has an open organization structure and our policy is to grant open access to all interested scientists from within and outside the Erasmus MC. The number of users has been growing over the years to currently about 200 scientists actively using the equipment.
This group participates in NL-BioImaging AM (www.eurobioimaging.nl).
