The Correlated Multimodal Imaging Node Austria (CMI) offers access to both outstanding cutting-edge imaging modalities (flagship technologies) and evaluated and ready-to-use multimodal imaging pipelines. Along the multimodal imaging pipelines, cutting-edge and state-of-the-art imaging techniques are applied sequentially on the same specimen. The obtained data cover several levels of resolution and provide complementary information with structural, functional and chemical characteristics. Sophisticated image processing tools are used to integrate the information obtained at each step and to build a holistic model of the imaged sample.
All flagship technologies and pipelines can be modified to meet individual demands. Specialists are available to plan and discuss applications, modifications, settings and protocols. The pipelines can be entered and terminated at every single step, and all the imaging techniques integrated in a pipeline are also offered as single imaging modalities.
