CZECH BIOIMAGING

National Infrastructure for Biological and Medical Imaging (Czech-BioImaging)

a part of Euro-BioImaging ERIC

Background description

Thanks to rapid technological development, innovative imaging technologies enable observing previously hidden life processes inside cells, tissues and entire organisms. Therefore, imaging has truly become one of the main drivers of research in biological and medical sciences. Czech-BioImaging is built as a distributed research infrastructure of imaging core facilities in the Czech Republic. It will offer open access to a broad portfolio of imaging techniques and expertise for acquiring completely new research data. Additionally, it will enhance the qualification of researchers and students in this area through training programs. Czech-BioImaging addresses needs in imaging at various levels – from imaging of organisms, tissues and cells, down to imaging of cell organelles, transport, biomolecules and their interactions in health and disease. Czech-BioImaging offers access to a broad range of imaging technologies, e.g. advanced light and fluorescence microscopy, super-resolution microscopy, electron microscopy, correlative light and electron microscopy, sample preparation, neuroscience imaging, magnetic resonance, magnetic particle imaging, and image data analysis. Czech-BioImaging is a member of the pan-European research infrastructure Euro-BioImaging.
