Welcome to the LiMiTec, the Light Microscopy Technology Platform of Bielefeld University.The LiMiTec started as an intiative of the Faculty of Biology and now represents a state-of-the-art imaging facility bundling all light microscopes of the Faculty of Biology. The group of Thomas Huser from the Faculty of Physics provides a strong expertise in Raman microscopy and super resolution microscopy. For technical support please contact Dr. Thorsten Seidel or use the contact form.



New Locations of Microscopes: The PolScope and the Zeiss polarisation microscopy have been moved to W01-230 and are ready to use. The Zeiss LSM5 Exciter has been moved to W01-236 and can be booked via the booking platform (Instructions required).

PC of the Keyence Biozero has been replaced by a recent model.
