Histology / Microscopy / Flow Cytometry

The tree parts of this devision are thought as multi user workplaces. Equipment and resources are shared and can be booked online.

Every new lab member receives a general introduction into the structure of our labs. In addition training sessions prior to the use of equipment like microscopes or microtomes are offered. While users after the general introduction work self dependent we are happy to support their work with our expertise, suggestion of methods and troubleshooting.
