BioImaging and Optics Platform

Fibroblasst with Nuclei, Microtubules, Actin and Mitochondria stainings, acquired on an LSM710 confocal microscope.

Dr. Arne Seitz

Our goal is to provide instruments and more importantly expertise to solve challenging (biological) questions with modern light-microscopy. Therefore the BIOP seeks to create a link between life sciences and engineering to investigate jointly these fundamental fields.
