Nikon Center of Excellence

In 2022, the DBM microscopy core facility was designated a Nikon Center of Excellence for translational research and has been working closely with Nikon ever since.

The DBM Center of Excellence for Translational Research is the result of a long-lasting partnership between Nikon and the Department of Biomedicine. The two directors, Mike Abanto and Pascal Lorentz, developed the unit from scratch into an excellent microscopy core facility within the last 15 years.

The DBM Nikon Center of Excellence not only offers a variety of cutting-edge microscopes and has excellent staff, but they are also leaders in automation using Nikon’s programming interface, called JOBS.
With their high-end equipment they provide optimal conditions to foster competitive research.
