The Nanoscopy Science Center (NSC) at Faculty of science, Kuwait University welcomes all its users to the newly updated website as per latest technology. This center is the largest and most comprehensive facility of its type in Kuwait and one of the best in the region.

It was established in 1976 as  a service center for the research studies of faculty members, graduate students and researchers from Kuwait university and other scientific institutions as well. But on the 2nd of August 1990, the center was completely damaged by the Iraqi invasion. After the liberation of Kuwait, the center was re-established again.

Currently the center has expanded its facility by three new microscopes i.e. Variable Pressure Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM), Atomic Force Microscope, (AFM/SPM) and Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope(LSCM). Besides sample preparation, sample imaging and analysis, NSC also provides training and workshops on related topics
