Confocal microscopy

Confocal microscopy
The Core Facility Imaging @ MUW (CFI) provides state-of-the-art confocal microscopes. They support imaging of fixed tissue or cells and live cell imaging. Furthermore, the CFI offers workstations, which allow an onsite evaluation and processing of their data with suitable software. In addition, the CFI houses a small histology unit for sample preparation. For performing live cell imaging the facility provides a fully equipped cell culture lab.
