About the NorMIC Imaging Platform

NorMIC is organized in a network with nodes in Bergen, Oslo, Stavanger, Tromsø and Trondheim, and together these nodes cover all present modalities within molecular imaging. The NorMIC Imaging Platform at the Institute for Biosciences (IBV) in Oslo is a specialized microscopy unit for the subcellular study of living and fixed cells. The instrumentation includes several confocal laser scanning microscopes, total internal reflection (TIRF) microscopy, electron microscopy (EM) and wide-field fluorescence microscopy.

The organization of the Imaging Platform as a core facility implies that all researchers in Norway are welcome users at equal terms through our booking system. The Imaging Platform offers courses, expertise, use of confocal instruments after booking/availability (new users will need to go through training/assessment procedure) and access to immuno-EM techniques. Use of instruments will be charged.
