The goal of the ALFM facility is to support researchers as efficiently as possible for light microscopy and correlative light and electron (cryo-) microscopy projects, and to offer them advanced imaging equipment.

According to the need of the users, we offer different levels of support:

  • Independent use of instruments after training
  • Accompanying support for imaging projects
  • Collaborative development and implementation of imaging project

In addition, we support researchers with image processing and image analysis.
