The A*STAR Microscopy Platform (AMP) brings together a broad range of light (AMP|LM) and electron microscopy (AMP|EM) capabilities to meet the needs of the Singapore biomedical research community.


Imaging is possible across the length scales;

  • from fine ultrastructural electron microscopy

  • through high spatiotemporal imaging of dynamic cellular processes

  • to 3D intra-vital imaging deep within living tissues

Importantly, this includes the critical complementary techniques of sample preparation and quantitative image analysis.


AMP’s team of dedicated expert staff have the experience to consult, train, support and offer high-quality service to scientists. AMP has valuable long-standing partnerships with key companies.


A*STAR Microscopy Platform (AMP) - Image of the month contest

Submit your image for consideration to be featured on our annual A*STAR Microscopy Platform Calendar. This is a great opportunity to gain recognition. All selected entries will also receive a copy of the calendar as a token of appreciation. We look forward to receiving your submission.

Submissions are welcome from all AMP users, as long as the image was acquired with the use of a microscope!

Submit here.


A Singapore-wide microscopy infrastructure network

AMP is a founding member of SingaScope – a Singapore-wide microscopy infrastructure network supported by the National Research Foundation’s Shared Infrastructure Support (SIS) grant. SingaScope a partnership between Singapore’s leading microscopy platforms; at the Mechanobiology Institute (MBI) and Centre for Bioimaging Sciences (CBIS) within the National University of Singapore, the Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) within Nanyang Technological University, and SingHealth.


SingaScope will enable all scientists to identify (through a searchable online database) and access valuable microscopy resources (both instrumentation and expertise). SingaScope will continue to develop the platforms through strategic acquisition of emerging technologies – keeping Singapore at the cutting-edge. We will continue to develop Singapore’s human capital, raise service standards and cement Singapore as the regional centre of excellence for microscopy training through the education of scientists and training of platform staff.


SingaScope is part of the Global Bioimaging network of imaging infrastructures and hosted the Exchange of Experience IV meeting in September 2019
