Microscopy at the Faculty of Biology & Psychology
Welcome to the homepage of the Central Microscopy Facility of the Faculty of Biology and Psychology!
The Central Microscopy Facility of the Faculty of Biology and Psychology is a joint platform run by the Departments of Plant Cell Biology, Cellular Neurobiology, Molecular Neurobiology of Behaviour and Evolutionary Developmental Genetics. The facility is located at the Schwann-Schleiden Research Center and the Ernst Caspari-Haus (GZMB).
We offer a collection of state-of-the-art microscopy equipment and provide training and technical support for our instruments. We have extensive experience in imaging plants and filamentous microbes (Dept. of Plant Cell Biology) as well as insect tissues (Depts. of Cellular Neurobiology and Molecular Neurobiology of Behaviour) and can provide expert advice in designing microscopy experiments in these areas.
