Central Microscopy (CeMic)

Central Microscopy (CeMic)

Our service group manages all commonly used microscopy-related equipment at the MPIPZ supporting the study of plant morphology as well as plant anatomy at the histological and (sub-)cellular level. We provide cell biological knowledge, practical experience and technical skills to researchers of our Institute enabling them to perform high-standard microscopy research projects by employing state-of-the-art instrumentation and equipment.

  • CeMic supports a large portfolio of microscope imaging technology, from widefield light & epifluorescence microscopy to sophisticated live cell imaging and from high-resolution surface imaging with scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to fine-structural analysis by transmission electron microscopy (TEM).
  • CeMic advises scientists on their imaging projects, experimental planning and post-acquisition analysis and supervises equipment usage and the training and assisting of researchers in instrument operation.
  • CeMic performs collaborative research on cytological aspects of ongoing research projects at the Institute itself.

Please check out our "Rules & guidelines" on the Intranet for more detailed information about our services.
