The complementarity and synergistic collaboration of the INFORM project partners is also based on a large expertise and availability of biological and imaging methods.


Imaging and biophysical platforms

Our consortium gathers a wide range of expertise in imaging and biophysical technologies, which provide the necessary tools to explore new frontiers in biology. These technologies are complementary to each other and cover a continuum of spatial and temporal scales:

  • to measure speed/dynamics: spinning disk confocal microscopy, Sheet illumination microscopy (SPIM), Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS)
  • to assess high resolution at the molecular and supramolecular level: Single molecule fluorescence Imaging/PALM, Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), Electron Microscopy.
  • to monitor interactions: AFM, FCS
  • to measure forces: AFM, optical tweezers, laser nanodissection
  • tor in-depth imaging: Multiphoton Microscopy

For the needs of the INFORM project we also run complementary technologies development such as PALM-SPIM, high speed AFM, and Bessel beam 3D fast microscopy.

Equipments are listed and presented in detail on imaging facilities website from IBDM and CIML

Biology platforms

Partners of the Labex display high expertise in down-top biological models, from cell culture to integrated in vivo models together with complete associated facilities:
