Equipment

The section of Molecular Cytology houses a variety of advanced light microscope setups that can be used by people from other institutes or industry. The microscopy equipment has been organised into the van Leeuwenhoek Centre for Advanced Microscopy (LCAM). More info about LCAM-FNWI can be found herelogo_LCAM

In addition the section is equipped with many facilities to grow, manipulate and measure cells (from bacteria to animal cells) and equipment for molecular biological and  biochemical work.

The equipment in the Molecular Cytology laboratory, listed below, is described in detail at the LCAM-FNWI website.
