Core Facility Imaging (CFI) Save as PDFShow print view

The Core Facility Imaging (CFI) is a central facility of the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg, providing access and know-how to high-resolution fluorescence microscopy, real-time PCR, Flow Cytometry and Infrared Scanning techniques for internal and external users. The main emphasis of this facility is high-resolution laser scanning microscopy as well as live cell imaging. Besides providing acess to a variety of advanced equipment we offer assistance or full service in high resolution microscopy, trainings and develop software algorithms for (semi)-automated image analyses. The CFI is actively involved in several externally funded research projects, and thus continuously aims at improving its expertise portfolio to sustain high quality support for its users.

    The Core Facility Imaging (CFI) of the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg provides access to high-resulution microscopy including confocal laser scanning microscopy (SP5, Leica) as well as epi-fluorescence microscopy (TE2000, Nikon). Our equipment is designed to allow high-resolution as well as live cell imaging including techniques like FRAP, FRET or photoconversion. Our Biocope Catalyst (Bruker) combines atomic force measurements with fluorescence microscopy. Furthermore, the CFI provides expertise and equipment for Flow Cytometry analyses (MacsQuant, Miltenyi), real-time PCR (96well and 384well) as well as Infrared scanning (Odyssey, LICOR) of Western blots, in-cell-Western or small animal in vivo imaging (Pearl, LICOR). In addition to providing high-end instruments, we offer unassisted as well as assisted services, training on instruments and software development for the automated analyses of images and live cell applications.
