UKE Microscopy Imaging Facility (UMIF)

Core Facility 200 user / year

The Mission of the UKE microscopy Imaging facility is to make accessible cutting edge light microscopy techniques and imaging data analysis tools to the university medical centre Hamburg Eppendorf (UKE) scientific community. We pursue this goal by contributing to the development of novel light microscopy techniques, keeping up to date our microscopes as well as via a wide educational portfolio that includes trainings, teaching classes, imaging and data analysis workshops.
