Microscopy Service

Fig-Serv-Microsc-02In the Microscopy Service of the COMAV Institute we work with all types of plant samples and process them for observation and analysis in light and fluorescence microscopes, as well as transmission and scanning electron microscopes. In our facilities we have a light and epifluorescence microscope (bright field, phase contrast, DIC and fluorescence), inverted and dissection microscopes, ultramicrotomes, equipment for processing at both room temperature (automatic tissue processors) and low temperature(AFS2 cryosubstitution system). We also have the possibility to use in situmolecular localization techniques over these samples (FISH, immunofluorescence, immunocytochemistry and ultrastructural in situ hybridization) either manually or automatically (using automatic immunostaining equipment). For electron microscopy, we have the electron microscopes available at the Electron Microscopy Service (SME) of the Universitat Politècnica de València.
