Bioimaging 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 Bioimaging Unit, 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 unit 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.
