A*STAR microscopy Platform

The A*STAR Microscopy Platform (AMP) brings together a broad range of light and electron microscopy techniques to meet the needs of the Singapore biomedical research community. Imaging is possible across the length scales; from fine ultrastructural electron microscopy, through high spatiotemporal imaging of dynamic cellular processes, to 3D intra-vital imaging deep within living tissues. Importantly, this includes the critical complementary techniques of sample preparation and quantitative image analysis. AMP’s team of dedicated expert staff have the experience to consult, train, support and offer high-quality service to scientists.


AMP is a founding member of SingaScope – a Singapore-wide microscopy infrastructure network, with platforms at the Mechanobiology Institute (MBI) and Centre for Bioimaging Sciences (CBIS) at the National University of Singapore, the Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) at Nanyang Technological University, and SingHealth to provide open access to valuable microscopy resources via a searchable online database. SingaScope is leveraging on existing well-equipped platforms and developing them through strategic acquisition of emerging technologies – keeping Singapore at the cutting-edge.
