The Bioimaging Center (BIC) is the imaging core facility of the University of Konstanz. The BIC offers its users access to different modalities of advanced light microscopy, technical advice in sample preparation, and support in image and data analysis.
BIC pursues research for the advancement of microscopy techniques, in particular nonlinear imaging and photomanipulation using femtosecond fiber lasers, in close collaboration with the Center for Applied Photonics (CAP). The biological focus of interest lies in the response of the cell nucleus to stress and DNA damage.
