A*STAR Microscopy Platform

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 widefield and confocal microscopy, AMP focuses on the following areas of advanced imaging:

  • 3D-imaging
  • F-techniques
  • Live-cell imaging
  • Super-resolution microscopy
  • Electron microscopy
  • Image analysis & processing
