Re-opening: We will re-open CAi on Monday, 9th of November. The CAi microscopes are now available in our new rooms in 26.14 level 00: room 013 (Zeiss Spinning Disc), room 015 (Leica SP8 STED), room 030 (ZEISS Elyra and Zeiss LSM710: it's working again!) and room 035 (Zeiss LSM880 and 780).

Please notice: We are lacking behind with the S1 registration for the new rooms. Therefore, you are not allowed to bring living S1 samples to the CAi rooms now, only fixed or non-S1 samples! There is no exception from this until we have approval that our rooms are registered!! Let us know if we have to remove your bookings due to this situation.

Corona Safety Measures: Due to the Corona situation at the moment we go back to more strict safety measures: per slot only one person at a microscope system, no introductions to new users, after your session: please use the provided 70% ethanol solution for cleaning all surfaces you have been in contact with. These measures are valid until further notice.

How to get access to the new rooms: all registered users who need access should write an email to: cai@hhu.de with the subject "access CAi rooms". We will then prepare the form for you that you can pick up in our office (team: or Steffi:

Stay healthy!

Register Now: Beginners Guide to Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) in Life Sciences

We are happy to announce an online symposium about fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) that will provide the opportunity for life scientists to learn and explore the applications of FLIM in their research.

When: 23-27 November 2020
Where: Virtually everywhere

The symposium will cover the wide spectrum of the techniques, methods, and applications of FLIM, particularly tailored to be a bench-side how-to manual. Over the course of a week, participants will learn the principles of FLIM, the key issues in the field of data acquisition and analysis, and what approaches are available for applying in their research. The hands-on sessions are specially planned to provide the tutorials for everyone regardless how new or experienced they might be in the field.

The overall goal of the symposium is to provide the life scientists with practical knowledge ready to apply in their daily work. It will also serve as an opportunity for FLIM experts to get to know each other, share expertise, and establish collaborations. We see it as a nonconventional learning opportunity for everyone.

We encourage everyone interested in FLIM, students, postdocs, scientific staff, and group leaders, to register and attend the virtual symposium. For more information and registration please check the symposium webpage.

Organized by:
Ali Gheisari (TU Dresden), Thomas Zobel (WWU Münster), Stefanie Weidtkamp-Peters (HHU Düsseldorf), Steffen Dietzel (LMU München), and Mariano Gonzalez Pisfil (LMU München)

Important note

Due to frequent thefts of microscope lenses we ask all users to keep the rooms locked at all times, thank you very much!
