BioImaging & Optics Platform

Welcome to the BioImaging & Optics Platform (BIOP). The BIOP offers competence and state of the art equipment in microscopy and image analysis.
Cell Segmentation Using Deep Learning and Nearest Neighbor Analysis

Cells segmented using STARDIST Deep learning, within QuPath software.

The BioImaging and Optics Platform (BIOP) is located in the faculty of Life Science (SV) at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and part of a network of core facilities at the faculty. The general idea of the platform is to provide instruments and even more important expertise to solve challenging (biological) questions with modern light-microscopy. Therefore the BIOP seeks to create a link between life sciences and engineering to investigate jointly these fundamental fields. Teaching and education as well as research projects are organized for promoting a mutual understanding.
