Welcome to the BioImaging Core Facility (BCF) of Leipzig University. We provide access to imaging technology for the life sciences. Our mission is to assist your research efficiently and cost-effectively.

Leica SP8 Falcon

we are pleased about the extension of our instruments by a Leica SP8 Falcon from AG Pompe. The Microscope is excellently equipped and will soon be available to BCF users.
