CIUS celebrates 10th anniversary


The Core Facility Cell Imaging and Ultrastructure Research has been providing state-of-the-art microscopy equipment for 10 years. Advanced video, light and electron microscopy combined with atomic element analysis, as well as means for documentation of biological topics by photography and scientific videography are offered for researchers of the Faculty of Life Sciences and abroad.

The colleagues of CIUS elucidate structures of various degrees of complexity which will thereby contribute to a better understanding of function, ontogenetic and physiologic processes, as well as phylogenetic relationships. This includes widespread cooperation with other research institutions in Austria and abroad. Researchers at CIUS teach and train students in light-and electron microscopic techniques and supervise Bachelor and Master Students with a sound interest in structural/ functional relationship. CIUS assists its customers with technical equipment and expert guidance in order for them to obtain the maximum benefit to execute their research projects.
