Facility Details

The mission of the MPI-CBG Light Microscopy Facility (MPI-CBG LMF) is to provide 24/7 access to state-of-the-art light microscopy techniques and instruments as well as to follow future trends. We assist through consultation, training, and project collaborations.

The LMF advises users during design and execution of their imaging projects. We provide support with selecting the most suitable imaging techniques, microscope systems, and setting up imaging experiments.

We offer our expertise in imaging techniques, such as

Spinning disk confocal microscopy
Laser scanning confocal microscopy
2-photon microscopy
Light sheet microscopy
Wide-field microscopy
Total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy
Laser capture microdissection
Extended resolution microscopy
Quantitative phase imaging
Live cell and organoid imaging

Furthermore, the LMF is constantly exploring new commercial technologies that can support the research mission of the MPI-CBG. We are also involved in multiple outreach and educational activities in Dresden and beyond.
