Optical imaging knowledge center launches at Imperial College London

Feb. 4, 2021
The Leica and Imperial Imaging Hub will provide deeper insights into high-quality images and acquired data through improved optical imaging workflows.

Leica Microsystems (Wetzlar, Germany) and Imperial College London (Imperial; London, England) have partnered to set up a dedicated optical imaging hub at Imperial, which will be equipped with advanced confocal and widefield microscopy systems.

The Leica and Imperial Imaging Hub will provide the latest innovations from Leica Microsystems for use by both Imperial research staff and in workshops open to the wider scientific community. It will act as a microscopy knowledge center in optical precision imaging for scientists and researchers at Imperial, providing deeper insights into high-quality images and acquired data through improved imaging workflows. The center will also serve as a platform for Imperial and Leica Microsystems to maintain a close dialogue on the value of microscopy in developments and research applications, as well as to collaborate on joint research projects.

The collaboration combines the strengths of both partners to work together for the advancement of state-of-the-art research. Imperial College London is a world top-10 university with an international reputation for excellence in teaching and research, while Leica Microsystems optical microscopes and scientific instruments are known for their use in the analysis of microstructures and nanostructures.
