Seeing is Believing – light microscopy for a wide range of applications

The Core Facility Imaging provides various optical systems for 2D, 3D and 4D microscopy. The offering enables recordings of both fixed and living cells, from entire tissue to subcellular details.

In addition to training on the individual systems, the Core Facility Imaging team offers help with experiment planning, advice and troubleshooting, as well as support with subsequent image and data analysis.
The range includes various brightfield and fluorescence microscopes (including slide scanners, TIRF, FLIM, confocal, spinning disk and lightsheet systems) as well as a small histology unit with two rotation microtomes and a cryo-microtome. The facility also offers a cell culture laboratory to carry out live cell experiments.


In order to use a device in the facility, training on the respective system is mandatory and a prerequisite! During training, users receive login details for the booking calendar and can then independently use devices themselves.
Access to the facility is guaranteed from Monday to Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
There is also the possibility of accessing the facility outside of these times. In this case, we ask that you contact us in advance:



  • Advice on planning of imaging experiments
  • Troubleshooting
  • Training on the facility’s equipment
  • Standby support when using the devices
  • Training and support in data analysis
  • Equipment maintenance
  • Imaging workshops
