Established research infrastructures

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

Advance Light Microscope Laboratory (ALM)

This research infrastructure, located at SciLifeLab, provides access and user support in advanced light microscopy for nanoscale biological visualization. The laboratory is one of the nodes in the Swedish national microscopy infrastructure, NMI, and its European counterpart, EuroBioimaging.
