Hubrecht Imaging Center

The Hubrecht Imaging Center ensures high performance and optimal use of the advanced imaging equipment at the Hubrecht Institute by testing periodically and optimizing all systems, training of new researchers and providing support to advanced imaging experiments.

New microscope users should contact microscopy manager Anko de Graaff in order to get a full instruction before they are allowed to use the microscopes. Whenever necessary, Anko gives extra support and advice for setting up and performing complex imaging experiments.
