The BioOptics Facility has been established in 2007 to strengthen the rapidly developing light microscopy. Several instruments have been brought together in a common pool to enable us to offer a wide variety of machines for different purposes. In the meantime we could also acquire new state of the art equipment and are continuously investing into new technologies.


The facility is supporting researchers in their projects. Previous discussion at the beginning of the experiment, choosing the right microscope, supporting image acquisition as well as teaching image processing programs are all important duties that we cover.
