Established research infrastructures

KTH has twelve established research infrastructures with long-term, strategic development plans. They are also national infrastructures, which stakeholders and users can access.

KTH's established research infrastructures are strategic, accessible to many users and are used frequently. They have a long-term plan for organisation, quality assessment and funding as well as for societal impact.

Advance Light Microscope Laboratory (ALM)

The Advanced Light Microscopy (ALM) Laboratory is a KTH research infrastructure at Science for Life Laboratory. ALM provide access and user support in advanced light microscopy for nanoscale biological visualization. The laboratory is one of the nodes in the national microscopy infrastructure and also a member of the european infrastructure EuroBioimaging. .

Director: Hjalmar Brismar

About Advanced Light Microscopy

Electrum Laboratory

The research infrastructure has a so called cleanroom of 1300 square metres and other facilities for nano- and micro fabrication, available for education, research and development, prototyping and development. The laboratory is led by KTH and RISE and is a partner node of MyFab.

Director: Nils Nordell
