The aim of the light Microscopy facility is to offer both technical support and innovation in imaging technology to the scientific community in academia and in industry.

The facility includes state of the art light microscopy instrumentation, ranging from slide scanner, and confocal laser scanning and light-sheet microscopy to advanced software for image analysis.

The availability of cutting-edge tools such as X-clarity, custom light-sheet systems for whole brain acquisition and 4D post-processing software, together offer to neuroscientist unique opportunities to explore uncovered boundaries.


This platform is under the scientific supervision of Professor Grégoire Courtine (EPFL/CNP-BMI), Professor Diego Ghezzi (EPFL/CNP).

The light microscopy facility, at Campus Biotech embeds the new Advanced Lightsheet Imaging Center (ALICe).

The microscopy team is composed by Laura Batti, Stéphane Pagès and Audrey Tissot. For more information please, contact us:
