The HIH-CIN Imaging Cluster is a newly established unit that provides microscopic imaging support. At the moment we work with confocal and wide-field microscopes. Our users are HIH and CIN researchers, their collaboration partners and external scientists from several locations in Tübingen.
We support microscopic imaging with open access: from microscope selection and sample preparation to acquisition, image processing, visualization and data analysis with available software (Fiji, Imaris, Huygens, Ilastik etc.).
We also assist with image preparation for publications. In addition to daily support, we teach light microscopy to medical doctors and students and offer open workshops in collaboration with our internal and external partners.
After instruction, most of our microscopes are bookable through the Medical School's shared PPMS system.
