The facility was set up as a cooperation between EMBL and industry to improve communication between users and producers of high-end microscopy technology. The ALMF supports in-house scientists and visitors in using light microscopy methods for their research.Edit
The ALMF supports in-house scientists and visitors in using light microscopy methods for their research. We are assisting throughout the process of microscopic imaging: planning of a project, sample preparation, selection and usage of the microscope, image processing and visualisation, data transfer and storage.
Our support in high-throughput microscopy also includes RNAi technology, assay development, pilot screen validation and automated image acquisition
The Advanced Light Microscopy Facility (ALMF) offers a collection of state-of-the-art light microscopy equipment and image processing tools.
The ALMF collaborates with a number of technology partners.
We are happy to welcome visitors in the Advanced Light Microscopy Facility if capacity allows.
Please note that visitors from EMBL’s Member or Associated Member States are our first priority.
If you would like to apply as a visitor in the ALMF, please contact us by email including a short overview of your project. We will discuss the feasibility of your project internally and in case of a positive evaluation we will contact you for a more detailed meeting over the phone, via Skype or video conference.
The ALMF currently participates in several initiatives supporting visitor access:
