Microscopy

We have two electron microscopes (EM (one scanning electron microscope (SEM) and one transmission electron microscope (TEM)) and one confocal microscope (one Leica SP8 DLS). The Leica SP8 DLS is a fully equipped confocal but can also be configured as a light sheet microscope. The equipment is available for all researchers within the Department of Biology, and also for researchers from both within and outside Lund University.

We also assist with sample preparation for electron microscopy and training and support in all microscopy techniques.

User's fees (excl. VAT)

The prices apply to both confocal and electron microscopy.
