Microscopy and Imaging

The Microscopy and Imaging Center is managed by the Rios group and coordinates all research related microscopy imaging. We provide state-of-the-art microscopy and training for all researchers of the Princess Máxima Center. We provide experimental design and imaging requests on a collaborative basis. Please contact us to discuss how we can advance your research.
What we offer:
We provide advanced imaging resources to assist scientists of the Princess Máxima Center with their research. In addition to maintenance, we can also offer specific training and consultation, technical assistance, and image analysis. Periodically, we will arrange events and workshops on microscopy techniques.
