Mode of operation

Leading manufacturers of microscopy equipment are providing their latest developments. The ALMF introduces this new equipment and technology to EMBL scientists and visitors and provides means to handle samples and image data.

This partnership gives scientists the opportunity to use and evaluate first class equipment for their experiments and at the same time gives the industrial providers the opportunity to present and evaluate their equipment in the scientifically highly skilled and advanced surrounding of the leading European Institute of molecular biology research.

The function of the ALMF is to provide all means to maximize the output from this partnership.

Industrial co-operations are evaluated every year.

The ALMF serves as a reference site for Bitplane, Eppendorf, Lambert Instruments, Leica Microsystems, Olympus, PerkinElmer, X-Cite and Zeiss.
