Welcome to the website of the Advanced Optical Microscopy Centre (AOMC), a fluorescence microscopy core facility at Hasselt University. Our facility offers researchers access to state-of-the-art fluorescence microscopes and provides expertise and support for many types of experiments.
The AOMC is part of Flanders BioImaging, the inter-university consortium that supports international access to advanced imaging methods in Flanders. If you're interested in using AOMC equipment in your research, then Flanders Bioimaging can greatly facilitate your access to the AOMC infrastructure. Do not hesitate to apply through FBI!
UHasselt researchers have secured the funds for a high-end, versatile lightsheet microscope capable of imaging both live and cleared samples. In the near future this setup will be installed at the AOMC enabling fast, sensitive and highly detailed three-dimensional imaging.
More information coming soon.
Inaugural symposium on the occasion of the recent expansion of the UHasselt Advanced Optical Microscopy Centre (AOMC) with state of the art equipment for Large-Field-of-View Widefield Fluorescence Microscopy and Single-Molecule-Sensitive Fluorescence Spectroscopy.
When: 05 & 06/09/2022
Where: Hasselt University, Campus Diepenbeek
Advanced fluorescence microscopy has become increasingly important in life science research in recent years. Flanders BioImaging now offers researchers a chance to become familiar with the breadth of advanced techniques available in Flemish microscopy core facilities. During this three-day course, participants will be immersed in the theoretical foundations and practical aspects of methods that will allow them to study molecular interactions and dynamics, acquire three-dimensional datasets from large (cm) specimens, and break through the resolution limit in several different ways.
