Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

After rapid development, the Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope (CLSM) became the most important imaging tool in both organismic and molecular biology. In this course, we present the theoretical background of CLSM, its application in structure analysis, in measurement and quantification of physiological parameters like membrane potential, ion concentrations or enzyme activities as well as current special techniques. In a hands-on-training, we will apply the following techniques: localisation and identification of structures with organelle specific fluorescent dyes and GFP, 3D-reconstruction and animation, 4D analysis, ratio imaging, spectral dye separation. Participants are encouraged to bring their own samples. Positive examination of this lab course is a prerequisite for independent work on the CLSM of the Cell Imaging and Ultrastructure Research Unit.

Assessment and permitted materials

Active participation in the lab course, written evaluation of the knowledge aquired in the lectures, protocol

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The participants know the theoretical background, the possibilities and the limitations of confocal laser scanning microscopy. They are able to work with a modern CLSM and they are familiar with techniques for sample preparation and the evaluation of results.

Examination topics

Lectures on the theoretical background of CLSM, Hands-on-training with provided samples, detailed investigation of a sample selected by the student.
