Core Facility 300 user / year Usage Rules & Regulations

The ALMF supports in-house scientists and visitors in using light microscopy methods for their research. We are assisting throughout the process of microscopic imaging: planning of a project, sample preparation, selection and usage of the microscope, image processing and visualisation, data transfer and storage. Our support in high-throughput microscopy also includes RNAi technology, assay development, pilot screen validation and automated image acquisition
