    Equipments Details


    In Helsinki, imaging services have been integrated intothe
    Helsinki Functional Imaging Center (HFIC) which is in charge of coordination and development. The HFIC offers a wide range of imaging services, including
    the wide-field and confocal imaging of cells (also live cells), high-
    throughput screening imaging, electron microscopy (EM, cryo-EM, scanning EM), laboratory animal imaging (based on luminance and fMRI technologies) and
    imaging techniques based on material technologies (nanomaterials, nanoimaging). The HFIC comprises 12 core units and a national centre for electron microscopy.
