    Cochin Imaging photonic : IMAG'IC

    Team leader

    The Institut Cochin photonic imaging facility (IMAG’IC), which has the Gis IBiSA, France-BioImaging and ISO 9001 labels, is under the scientific direction of Florence Niedergang and under the responsibility of the engineer Pierre Bourdoucle.
    In the center of Paris, the platform has 15 acquisition systems (Widefield, confocal imaging, super-resolution (PALM, sptPALM, 3D STORM, 3D STED), multi-photon SHG THG, TIRF, FLIM, FRET-FLIM, Imaging flow cytometer, histo-cytometry...) and 3 stations for analysis and image processing, spread over 155 m². Any person working in a public laboratory (EPST, University) or private company can benefit from help or training to become autonomous to work on all microscopes managed by the platform.
    In parallel, image restoration by 3D deconvolution, image quantification, database,  3D printing, vibratome sectioning of thick tissues and tissue clarification are also now proposed to our users.
