NMI – National infrastructure for microscopy within life sciences
A distributed infrastructure for advanced microscopy for research within life sciences.
National Microscopy Infrastructure, NMI, is a distributed infrastructure for advanced microscopy for research within life sciences. Nodes are located at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University, Umeå University and University of Gothenburg. Each of the nodes has a combination of leading-edge equipment and competence within different microscopy techniques.
The infrastructure provides services such as super-resolution microscopy, intravital microscopy, multimodal imaging, cryo-electron microscopy, STED (stimulated emission depletion) and correlative electron microscopy. NMI also provides user support and access to highly specialised equipment and leading-edge competence within the area. The infrastructure also coordinates national and international knowledge exchange within the area.
Access to the infrastructure is obtained through an application procedure, where the project proposals are prioritised and matched against available equipment.
