The BioOptics unit specializes in light microscopy and fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS). It hosts high-end equipment that enable researchers to get as much scientific data as possible out of their biological specimens. Instruments are compatible with living samples of all flavours; wherever possible using incubators, working with low light doses and customising sample holders.
