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.



December 22nd 2018 - January 2nd: The University is closed during the holidays.

December 21st 2018, LSM780: Maintenance of the system


New Locations of Microscopes and PCs: The PolScope has been moved to W01-236 and is back on duty. Another polarization microscope can be found in W1-202. The PC for image processing with the ZEN-software can be found in the isotope lab (W0-201).
