Optical Microscopy

The Optical Microscopy facility provides scientific and technical expertise in light microscopy, in particular in the use of complex state-of-the-art microscope systems for the recording and analysis of light microscopic data. Support and training in making preparations for light microscopy, including suitable labeling strategies, and in the recording and analysis of data will also be offered. The facility has a special focus on fluorescence nanoscopy techniques, and is run by Dr. Elisa D’Este.

Key Instrumentation:

- 3D STED nanoscope at 775nm for multi-color imaging, with RESCue and DyMIN imaging modalities

- 3D STED nanoscope at 595nm, with RESCue and DyMIN imaging modalities

- 3D RESOLFT nanoscope for imaging of photoswitchable proteins

- 2D RESOLFT nanoscope for imaging of Dreiklang

- Confocal microscope
