Center for Live Imaging of Cells at Karolinska Institutet (CLICK)

The Center for Live Imaging of Cells at Karolinska Institutet (CLICK) is an advanced light microscopy facility equipped with confocal, 2-photon and fluorescence microscopes.

CLICK has the ambition to provide access to state-of-the-art microscopy equipment and all training and assistance required for basic observations of living cells to long-term time-lapse recordings of whole animals.

In addition, CLICK also provides access to software for data visualization, analysis and interpretation of 3D and 4D microscopy datasets.
