Scientific Description
The BOKU-VIBT Imaging Center (BIC) is an open facility which harbours 5 high-end light microscopes: 2 confocal laser scanning microscopes (CLSM), 1 inverted video microscope, 1 objective based total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscope and 1 laser micro-dissecting microscope (LMD). All microscopes were manufactured by Leica-Microsystems. The Imaging Center was founded by the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in 2010 and can be found in the Muthgasse Campus. Since its foundation the facility has been continuously operational. It provides infrastructure for life science and medical research as well as training for undergraduate and graduate students. Current projects are based on multidisciplinary fields: plant biology, (mammalian) cell biology, physiology of yeast cells, study of artificial membranes, nanoparticles, etc.
