From May 2023, high-level biosafety (NCB3) facility of the Comparative Medicine and Bioimage Centre of Catalonia (CMCiB) houses Abberior Infinity; a state-of the-art super-resolution confocal microscope.

This microscope is adapted for live cell imaging, and thanks to its super-resolution capabilities, is specifically well suited for studying molecular details of pathogen (viruses, bacteria, parasites) interactions with cells, organoids or tissues. Finally, due to open and easily upgradable nature of this platform, it will be able to grow depending on users' needs and offer in the future additional modalities such as 2-photon excitation or live animal intravital imaging.

The equipment of this class, unique in the region, is a powerful tool for advanced microscopy studies on fully infectious Level 3 pathogens (HIV, SARS-CoV-2, Monkey Pox, TB etc.) It is available for use by all internal and external users via IGTP Microscopy Platform.
