LABORATORY FOR CELL IMAGING

LABORATORY FOR CELL IMAGING

The laboratory for Cell Imaging is a complementary laboratory to the ones dedicated to cell-based assays and is equipped for fluorescent and real-time analyses of single cells in vitro and in vivo. Single-cell analysis in vitro span from qualitative and quantitative measurements of cell proliferation and apoptosis to complex analysis of cell movement in 2D and 3D settings. In vivo analysis of cell behaviour are based upon the chick embryo chorioallontoic membrane (CAM)-assay.
