Training at the BIOP

SARS-CoV-2 Situation

In order to better play our part in reducing the impact and spread of the novel coronavirus, the BIOP has taken the decision to postpone microscope and image processing trainings.

Please see our complete statement here.

Microscopy Training

To get access to the instruments of the BIOP, you must fill out our microscopy request form:


BIOP Training Request Form


After validation by the BIOP and your group leader, a meeting with a BIOP staff member (usually Arne Seitz the head of the PT-BIOP) is obligatory in order to discuss the scientific needs in details. You will receive an email suggesting a date, usually one week after the form was filled out.

It is also possible to pass by in room AI 0 140 and make an appointment directly. Throughout the discussion, it will be defined which microscopes to use and whom you should contact for the training session.

In Summary:

  1. Request Form.
  2. Discussion.
  3. Training Appointment.
  4. Training.

Please stick to this workflow as it turned out to be very efficient for the potential users and the BIOP staff as well.

Computers / Software Training

The BIOP has an open door policy regarding Image Analysis. You can either contact our Analysts or drop-by in AI 0 040 for a discussion.
