The Imaging Unit (IU) supports DEO scientific groups providing state-of-the-art optical imaging platforms and developing on-demand specific imaging and image analysis protocols. It provides its experienced assistance in users’ training to grant direct access to the microscopes, in assisting both microscopy beginners in setting up their experiments and the experienced DEO researchers in pilot experiments or advanced imaging techniques. The available systems cover different microscopy techniques including wide-filed and confocal, high content, time-lapse and super-resolution microscopy and the IU services include the microscopes’ data back-up and storage and the imaging reagents management.

The IU staff is strongly involved in teaching microscopy and image analysis for the SEMM PhD school and in practical laboratory activity for the students of the Master in Biomedical Omics of the University of Milan.
