Microscopy

 

Microscopy overview
We provide research microscopes that cover diverse applications of light microscopy including brightfield, darkfield, phase contrast, DIC, polarization, epifluorescence, and confocal laser scanning microscopy. All the microscopes are suited to image fixed samples, and two of them can also be used to image live cells. All microscopes are motorized and operated with the same software.

 
 

Image processing and analysis
We run workstations [Link 5] that provide tools for image processing and analysis in various software environments. Fields of application include contrast enhancement, image filtering, colocalisation of fluorochromes, image segmentation, and quantification of image data. We design workflows and scripts for semi-automated and fully-automated image analysis.
