MESA+ NanoLab | University of Twente

Microscopy & Analysis Centre

The MAC-Twente facility offers a wide variety of optical and electron microscopy techniques for highly detailed imaging and analysis of biological and non-biological specimens


OPTICAL MICROSCOPY

A wide variety of optical microscopy techniques for highly detailed imaging and analysis of biological specimen like live cell imaging facilities are available, both for stand-alone microscopy and integrated with automated liquid handling, enabling fully automated screening applications using living cells.



ELECTRON MICROSCOPY

Electron microscopy is used for seeing otherwise invisible worlds of microspace and nanospace. By using a beam of high energy electrons, electron microscopy reveals levels of detail and complexity inaccessible by optical microscopy.



SCANNING PROBE MICROSCOPY

In addition to the optical and electron microscopy facilities with various imaging modes to investigate a sample in microspace (1 m = 10-6 m) and nanospace (1 nm = 10-9 m), MAC-Twente offers a variety of chemical analysis techniques to explore the surface and internal structure of a specimen
