Advanced Medical Bioimaging Core Facility – Excellence Center for Microscopy at the Charité Berlin

The Advanced Medical Bioimaging Core Facility der Charité-Universitätsmedizin (AMBIO) has been established to provide both the infrastructure and expertise necessary for researchers with diverse backgrounds to efficiently perform advanced fluorescence microscopy projects on the molecular, cellular and tissue level.

AMBIO services include individual user training and assistence, and if necessary supervised image acquisition and guidance for data analysis.

AMBIO currently offers the following imaging modes:   

  • Widefield
  • Scanning Confocal
  • Spinning Disk Confocal
  • Multiphoton Confocal
  • Super-Resolution (STORM/PALM, SIM)

All AMBIO systems are equipped to allow multiplexed live-cell imaging projects, inlcuding time-lapse, multicolor, multiposition, large image scan and multi-well automation projects. The large range of available objectives offers imaging of divers sizes of samples over scales ranging from the nanoscale (single molecules, subcellular structures) to the millimeter scale (tissues, small organs).
