The Confocal Microscopy platform is a core facility focused on biomedical research. The main function is to advise on the experimental design, choose the equipment that best suits the needs and train the user in it, acquire, quantify, and analyze images.

The Confocal Microscopy platform is certified by the ISO 9001:2015.


  • Advice on the preparation and/or approach to studies.
  • Training.
  • Immunofluorescence from 2 to 5 fluorochromes.
  • Reconstruction of 3D and 4D images.
  • Co-location studies.
  • Inter and intra-interactions (FRET and FLIM).
  • Conventional or brightfield fluorescence microscopy of living, fixed cells, and tissues.
  • Time lapse
  • Pathological studies of different tissues, stained by conventional immunohistochemistry (freezing or paraffin) and quantification of the images.


  • Leica SP5 multispectral confocal AOBS system with high-resolution scanning, high-speed tandem digitalization, FLIM/FCS modules and time-lapse incubation modules.


  •  Leica SP2 AOBS  multispectral confocal AOBS system with high-resolution scanning,  high-speed tandem digitalization,and time-lapse incubation modules.


  • Zeiss AXIOVERT 200M inverted fluorescence microscope with temperature and CO2 control,  incubation cabinet that allows working with live cells both in fluorescence and in bright field. Equipped with fluorescence filters: DAPI, FITC, Rhodamine. Equipped with polarizers systems that allow capturing images of polarized light with all objectives.
