Searching for a decision tree? Clicking on the image below and you will be directed to our internal documentation that will help you to decide which system is best for your research project.
If you want to consult our system list directly, you will find the list scrolling down.
Please contact us for a project discussion at imcfunibasch in order to discuss your research project with our microscopy experts.
If you need a very special technique that we can not offer (e.g. MINFLUX), you can also reach out to our collegues of the Microscopy Network Basel (MNB). Please make sure to keep us in the loop such that we can still help you with data analysis and data managment.
