The importance and complexity of microscopy increased tremendously during the last decade for all types of life science research. The Center for Microscopy and Image Analysis is an open core facility of the University of Zurich supporting its life science research in all aspects of microscopic imaging.
We assist users in advanced microscopy, in planning imaging projects, sample preparation, image processing, data analysis and storage as well as in establishing new imaging infrastructure.
We teach microscopy, imaging and sample preparation in lectures and practical courses. In order to use any of our microscopy systems users are trained individually with a special focus on research projects.
