Instrumentation

Microscopes and Flow cytometers for your research

The Cell Imaging Core offers a wide range of different imaging instruments for your research, from epifluorescence microscopes to super-resolution confocal microscopes and from basic flow cytometers to cell sorters.

Our goal is to teach the users to use the instruments by themselves.

After training, the user can reserve the instrument using the electronic reservation book:

Data processing

Both data processing and analysis are important parts of imaging. For this purpose, the CIC has two powerful workstations, which are freely available for all users.The other has full Imaris installed. It also harbours AutoQuant deconvolution software. The other has Imaris with Tracking. Both workstations have BioImageXD, Fiji-ImageJ, FlowJo (reservable license), Corel and PhotoShop.

CIC offers assistance in image processing, analysis and usage of image analysis software.

One of our goals is to improve analysis tools by developing software. Our main products are Flowing Software and BioImageXD.
