ICM QUANT EXPERTISE AND EQUIPMENT FOR BIOIMAGING

This core facility makes available to academic researchers and industrials a very large panel of imaging technologies. Specific activities of ICM Quant staff include trainings and assistance as well as design of experimental procedures involving electron and photonic microscopy approaches. The facility is a part of the ICM core facility network and it is supported by “Investissements d’Avenir” ICM and Neuratris.
