Methods & Expertise for Research Infrastructure

The Zeiss EM 910 transmission electron microscope enables fine structure analyzes with a resolution of a few nanometers and has a multitude of application fields, such as
- Structural research in protozoology
- Vascular research
- Developmental- and tumor biology
- Muscular biology, including forensic analysis
- morphometric / stereological analysis (photo sampling for point counting)
- various fine structure studies on artropoda in the taxonomic and ecological context
- fine-structure analysis of cellular defenses with formation of NETs (neutrophil extracellular traps) in cystic fibrosis (mucoviscidosis), COPD and periodontitis
