External Access and Training Opportunities
The Unit of Microscopy and Dynamic Imaging, as part of TRIMA@CNIC (ICTS-ReDib National Infrastructure) is open for external access to equipment and image analysis work-stations, including support for image acquisition, sample preparation and/or data analysis.

Information and reservation at microscopy-unitcnic.es
We offer three access modalities:
Sporadic use will be allowed upon reservation and according to equipment availability.
Extensive use can be arranged after initial preliminary tests. The external user is invited to fill in the form to specify experiments and sample types, and needed equipment and support. Details on this type of access will be given upon request.
Prolonged Access is also offered to external investigators, facility staff, pre-doctoral, PhD students and post-doctoral fellows to conduct part of their projects using the equipment and expertise of the facility. In this case, a Visiting Scientist Agreement is offered. The Visiting Scientist will be also granted access to other CNIC services such as cell culture room and server archives. Also in this case, in agreement with the Unit, the external visitor is invited to fill the form to specify experiments and sample types, and needed equipment and support. Details on this type of access will be given upon request.
Individual training is offered for super-resolution STED microscopy, single molecule localization by dSTORM, TIRF, FLIM, FLIM-FRET, multiphoton microscopy and data/image analysis by Imaris, ImageJ-FiJi and deconvolution.
Periodically, the Unit also organizes internal and international training workshops, which are announced in this page. Topics cover basic and advanced microscopy, time resolved (FLIM) fluorescence, TIRF, super-resolution, single molecule localization and multiphoton microscopy.
