Leica Imaging Workshop 09.-25. Feb '22

In cooperation with Leica Microsystems and the Centre for Structural Systems Biology (CSSB) Hamburg, we invite you to attend a series of talks and product showcases featuring the STELLARIS 8 FALCON confocal and THUNDER Imager widefield systems.

Join this exciting workshop and learn how these microscopy innovations can make a difference to your research.

To participate to any event of the workshop, registration is necessary (please follow the links below), but there are no registration fees. You are all invited to participate and you can extend this invitation to anyone you think might be interested.


Wednesday 9th February, ONLINE PRESENTATION >>>> click HERE for details and registration <<<<
The experienced Leica team of advanced workflow specialists will present the innovation and application possibilities of both systems. Put your questions to their experts and discuss your application needs.


Monday 21st - Friday 25th February, LIVE PRODUCT SHOWCASE >>>> click HERE for details and registration <<<<
Come to the UKE Microscopy Facility (UMIF) for a personal demonstration and try the systems out with your own microscopy samples. 


Important!! Please send a feedback Email to Dr. Antonio Virgilio Failla (a.failla{at} if you intend to participate to the webinars and the practical tests (the latest will be necessary for reserving you time and for respecting the security regulation).

CREST X-Light workshop

In the frame of the UMIF workshop series 2021/2022, there will be an exciting webinar about the CREST X-Light V3 L-FOV Spinning Disk Confocal System.

It will take place on 26th November 2021 @ 10 a.m., and you can register via the form >>>>> HERE <<<<< to receive the webinar link.

The CREST X-LIGHT V3 L-FOV Spinning Disk confocal System is a customizable dual-camera system with a large field of view, integrated into Nikon's inverted microscope platform (Ti2 + NIS-Elements software). If you are interested, please register and share this information.

Are you also interested in testing the system with your own samples? Hands-on session will be possible between 02.12.-10.12.2021 at Campus Forschung. Please send an Email to a.failla{at} and Dr. Antonio Virgilio Failla will organize a testing slot for you.
