Microscopy Reference Center unveiled
An agreement between Leica Microsystems and the Cell Biology Unit (CBU) of the Medical Center of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz in Germany has led to the creation of a new Reference Center for Light Microscopy.
The Reference Center will allow scientists at the CBU to have access to the most modern light microscopy technologies, such as a SP8 multiphoton confocal system, so they can visualize cell structures at the sub-micrometer and nanoscale.
At the same time, Leica Microsystems can take advantage of the knowledge and experience of CBU scientists with the goal of developing higher performance microscopes to meet the future needs of its customers. The Reference Center will also serve as a Demo Center for Leica microscope technology.
