The integrated Bioimaging facility iBiOs is a core facility within the Center for Cellular Nanoanalytics (CellNanOs), an interdisciplinary Research Center at Osnabrück University. The iBiOs provides access to advanced fluorescence and electron microscopy techniques with highest spatiotemporal resolution. Next to state-of-the-art fluorescence imaging techniques, the iBiOs has specialized on live cell super-resolution microscopy based on single molecule imaging, structured illumination (SIM) and spectroscopy (FLIM, FCS). The iBiOs provides access to cutting-edge techniques such as lattice light-sheet microscopy and develops new nanoparticle based methods such as upconversion microscopy and second harmonic generation microscopy in close collaboration with different research groups at CellNanOs.
The EM unit applies state-of-the-art 2D scanning and transmission electron microscopy techniques, which are currently extended to 3D and cryo-techniques as well as correlative light-electron microscopy (CLEM). A broad repertoire of labeling techniques is available including the application of nanoparticles in living cells as well as for CLEM for achieving optimum performance.
The cytometry unit offers expertise and support for the use of various flow cytometers of the department (three analysers and one sorter). Available techniques include high-speed cell sorting, single cell cloning, expression analysis of fluorescent proteins, DNA ploidy and cell cycle analysis as well as measurement of apoptosis. Two of the instruments are placed in BSL2 labs and can be used to sort infectious material.

As a DFG-funded core facility, the iBiOs also provides access to external users. Please, contact us to discuss whether your project can be conducted at our imaging systems.
