    We want to know your experience at the CCI and would like to know what you  need in the future to do imaging at the FVM. Please help us by filling in the survey you have been sent via the mail.
  • DEMO Microscopes from 17th-22nd of May
    We are testing different microscopes to replace the Leica SPE2 “workhorse” that is having frequent technical failures and is heavily overbooked nowadays. Our aim is to increase the imaging capacity at the CCI by improving the workflow to do your imaging. We sent a mail with a request to give us samples you would like…
  • Leica SPE2 40x HCX oil objective defect
    The 40x oil on the Leica SPE-II CLSM showed severe chromatic aberration in Z for UV fluorescence. The objective is removed from the system and its aberration is being validated on another Leica machine in the UU campus. We probably need to repair or replace it. Our objectives are very costly and vulnerable, please handle…
  • Walking directions during reboot of the CCI labs

  • Centre for Cell Imaging safety instructions during the restart in the SARS-CoV-2 crisis
    The CCI is re-opening for microscopy from the 19th of May 2020. We hope everybody is safe at home trying to get a work routine partly at home and for essential work in the lab. Great initiatives to learn microscopy related (and unrelated)  courses are collected here (https://www.rms.org.uk) and on ibiology or MOOCs, this may…
  • Centre for Cell Imaging safety instructions during the SARS-CoV-2 crisis
    The CCI is closed for all purposes with exception for people that need to finish essential experiments and the work performed on corona at the virology subdepartment. We are one week in this setting now and hope everybody is safe at home trying to get a workroutine. Great initiatives to learn microscopy related (and unrelated)…
