Other equipment

Apart from the light and electron microscopes, CCI offer other related equipment, e.g. a laser microdissection system and various EM sample preparation equipment as well as a cell culture facility.

3D printer

At the CCI there is a Ultimaker S5 3D printer, which is used for microfabrication services. This 3D printer has two swappable 0.4 AA print cores, which can print plastics or composites. It offers a big build volume, 330 x 240 x 300 mm, with up to 20 micron layer resolution.

Cell culture facility

There is a cell culture facility, which is booked using the CCI booking system. To gain access please contact us.

Laser microdissection and pressure catapulting

The Laser Microdissection and Pressure Catapulting (LMPC) technology, which was developed by P.A.L.M., now Carl Zeiss, made non-contact sampling possible. The key function is the laser catapult: The specimen is microdissected by a focused laser beam. Then a defined laser pulse transports the cut piece of the specimen out of the object plane into a collection device.
