*bright field
*polarization microscopy
*phase contrast
*differential interference contrast

Confocal microscope (Leica SP8)

Stimulated emission depletion (STED) super-resolution microscope (Leica SP8-gSTED)


•You have acquired an understanding of the basic concepts behind the most important optical methods in cell biology.
•You have used a significant selection of optical cell biological tools that are currently available at the DAGZ and the BOKU Core Facility Multiscale Imaging.
•You have shown the capability to process, mount, and describe microscopic figures as required for thesis and/or journal publication.
