The A*STAR Microscopy Platform (AMP) brings together a broad range of light and electron microscopy techniques to meet the needs of the Singapore biomedical research community.
Imaging is possible across the length scales; from fine ultrastructural electron microscopy, through high spatiotemporal imaging of dynamic cellular processes, to 3D intra-vital imaging deep within living tissues and animals. Importantly this includes the critical complementary techniques of sample preparation and quantitative image analysis.
A team of dedicated expert staff have the experience to consult, train, support and offer high-quality service to scientists. We have well-established practical training programs (1:1 sessions, international courses, workshops and symposia) and strong links with relevant industry partners (e.g. Olympus, Leica and GE Healthcare).
As well as standard wide-field and confocal microscopy, AMP focuses on the following areas of advanced imaging:
