Live-cell imaging has become one of the most important techniques in modern cell biology. The Live-Cell-Imaging Core Laboratory of the Institute of Plant and Microbial Biology provides users with on-site tutorial services and technical supports on light and fluorescence microscopy, Delta Vision microscopy, confocal microscopy and laser microdissection and capturing technology.
