Electron Microscopy, Microcharacterization and functional Morphohistology and imaging
Tools for Restorative and Regenerative Medicine


This core facility gathers in one location large equipments for transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and electron-probe by EDX energy dispersion, microtomography, confocal microscopy and FTIR mapping, as well as equipment for histology sample preparation (ultramicrotomy, critical point apparatus, cryomicrotome, gold/palladium sputtering, carbon sputtering). We also recently invested in a CatWalk equipment from Noldus company, a highly sensitive automated tool to assess gait and locomotion of rodents through the recording of their footprints when they volontarily traverse a glass plate.
