Welcome to 2IP optical imaging platform

The 2IP multi-user platform was created in 2011 thanks to the sharing of imaging equipment present among the IREC research groups. 2IP gradually acquires new equipment and is now recognized as a UCL platform. 2IP is composed of two research logisticians (Caroline Bouzin and Guillaume Courtoy) and two technicians (Michele De Beukelaer and Aurélie Daumerie).
