The CHROMAVISION platform will allow molecular biologists to automatically isolate individual chromosomes from small tissue or cell samples and have these delivered to a super-resolution imaging system; the Super-Resolution Correlative Tweezers Fluorescence Microscope (CTFM-SR3D).
This instrument will for the first time enable 3D, super-resolution observation of metaphase chromosomes in real time, and permit manipulation of these chromosomes under near-physiological conditions. This technique will push the boundaries of what is currently possible in microfluidics and super-resolution microscopy, and will combine these into a single powerful approach for chromosome studies.
To achieve the goals of the Chromavision platform, interdisciplinary research is needed. Therefore five specific partners have decided to collaborate in this project. Together they are the perfect match. Below we introduce the five partners. They will shortly explain the core business of the institute/company and go into their research related to the project.
