Welcome to CAi

The Center for Advanced Imaging (CAi) is a joint venture of laboratories from the Mathematics/Natural Sciences Faculty and the Medical Faculty of HHU. The aim of CAi is to encourage the development and use of applied optical microscopy  in the interdisciplinary environment of Life and Material Sciences. The CAi may also be used by external research groups according to prior agreement.

Picture of the month

Superresolution micrograph of vimentin, a cytosolic structural filament, in a human HEp-2 cell. The large dark region in the middle indicates the position of the nucleus, which does not contain vimentin. Structures were immunostained using antibody-conjugated Abberior Star 635P dye, and images were acquired with the STEDYCON (Abberior Instruments) module for stimulated emision depletion, mounted on a Nikon microscope stand.
