Microscopy

The Microscopy Core offers access to laser scanning and spinning disk confocal microscopes, a multi-photon microscope, electron microscopes, a light sheet microscope, superresolution microscopy and widefield microscopes for fixed and live imaging. Additionally we provide server space and rapid image processing workstations. Everything is available to trained researchers every day, including holidays, at any hour. The Core also offers full-service Transmisison-Electron Microscopy specimen processing and imaging, imaging and image analysis support. Core scientists can also collaborate with investigators in order to develop novel imaging strategies and analysis approaches.
