Centre for Cellular Imaging


Since 2003, the Centre for Cellular Imaging (CCI) has offered services in advanced light microscopy. The facility focuses on the imaging of biological events at the cellular/molecular level of fixed or living cells or tissue and is open to all researches. We offer training in using the microscopes and give advice on specimen preparation. In addition, we teach undergraduate and graduate students in cellular imaging.

At CCI you can image multi-colour fluorescent specimens, make 3D images, time-lapse experiments with living specimens, measure molecular mobility and interactions, make correlative LM/EM imaging, carry out super-resolution structured illumination (SIM) and single-molecule localization (PALM/dSTORM) microscopy, perform high-content screening (HCS) microscopy and much more. We also offer the laser microdissection and pressure catapulting (LMD/LMPC) technology for non-contact sample handling using medical and biological materials for RNA or DNA recovery, protein analysis and also for cloning/live cell culture purposes.



  • Job position CCI

    [19 Feb 2018] We are now looking for a new colleague with expertise knowledge in light microscopy.

  • New EM equipment

    [19 Feb 2018] The opening day for our new transmission electron microscope, the Talos L120C, was some months ago and we are currently training new interested researchers to use this machine. Also, we now have the FEI Vitrobot installed and can soon offer plunge-freezing of samples for cryo-EM screening.
