Dirk Dormann

Head of Microscopy





We provide high-end light microscopy equipment, image analysis tools as well as training and support for all LMS users. The Microscopy Laboratory offers a large variety of systems ranging from basic stereo microscopes to the latest super-resolution instruments to assist the LMS rearch community in their research. Please note that access is restriced to LMS staff.

Use the links on the right hand side to explore what the facility has to offer. If you're not sure what systems might be suitable for your experiments try the Selection Guide and get in touch with us to discuss your requirements in more detail.

Several offline workstations with commonly used application packages are available for image processing, 3D-visualisation and analysis of user data.

Facility staff provide user training and continuing support ranging from help with experimental design, image processing/visualisation and quantitative image analysis to direct collaboration on specific projects. A large amount of our time is spent on developing customised software applications to automate image processing and analysis for facility users.
