The Advanced Microscopy (AM) Unit provides expertise and tools for the analysis of the structural and molecular organization of both live/fixed cells and tissues, and time-lapse investigations.

The service allows access to state-of-the-art optical microscopy instruments including transmitted light, fluorescence and confocal instruments, providing training and support for the correct use of the tools.

This service is intended for both members of the University of Piemonte Orientale and external user and companies.
