Bio-imaging unites the power of microscopy, biology, biophysics, biochemistry and advanced computational methods to study how genes and proteins function in living cells and organisms. Our Bio-Imaging Facility, established and managed by Christophe Jung provides access to high grade fluorescence research microscopes to observe and analyze fixed samples as well as live organisms. The facility holds a variety of microscopes and image processing tools, including a confocal microscope (inverted Zeiss LSM710), an epifluorescence microscope with Single Molecule detection capabilities (inverted Leica DM6000), a stereomicroscope (LEICA M205), as well as various software platforms for 3D volume rendering and image analysis (such as Metamorph, Imaris and Definiens Developer) and the Huygens deconvolution software.
