Expansion of our analytical equipment

Professor Andrew Ewing and the NCIMS has been awarded a grant of 37 million from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation for the opportunity to complement our techniques with a nanoSIMS. The grant is being awarded to the project “The Imaging metabolomics and lipidomics infrastructure”, a project with a focus on imaging life’s smallest constituents and to understand and interpret these elements in the unique environment of cells and tissues.

Now, our capabilities will be complemented by adding a high resolution imaging technique – a Cameca NanoSIMS. The NanoSIMS is a key component here and will fill research needs in many scientific fields such as medicine, environmental, and material science in terms of access to this form of high resolution molecular imaging”, says Professor Andrew Ewing of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology.
