NorMIC Oslo - Advanced Light Microscopy Node Oslo

The Norwegian advanced light microscopy Node is based on two imaging facilities, one at the University Hospital, Montebello, Oslo and one at the Department of Biosciences, Oslo University at Blindern, Oslo. Main research areas are kinetics of intracellular vesicle traffic, fusion, fission, cell division, cell migration and immune cell interactions in addition to imaging of fixed samples.

Specialties and expertise of the Node

The platform has a focus on live imaging of tissue culture and most light microscopy units are equipped with incubators for stable temperature and CO2. The unit offers expertise and technical assistance in a range of advanced light microscopes including confocal laser scanning instruments, spinning disc confocal, TIRF, as well as access to immuno-EM techniques.

Offered Technologies:

ISIDORe is a Horizon Europe funded project that brings together 154 partners from 32 countries around the world, and is designed to effectively support research on infectious diseases and increase preparedness for pandemic.
