Four-dimensional live cell imaging

Four-dimensional (4d) imaging (time-lapsed three-dimensional imaging) is a powerful tool for studying time-depended alternations of the subcellular localization and of morphological changes of spatial cellular structures. Tools for cultivation of yeast and mammalian cells directly on the microscope table and features provided by state-of-the art microscope systems for high-resolution imaging of multi-labelled specimens allow the detailed analysis of interactions of cellular structures in the three-dimensional context of the living cell.

4D live cell imaging and subsequent analysis of generated image data requires specific preparative conditions as well as specialized software tools. In this respect, our facility provides both hardware and software tools for efficient realization of 4D imaging experiments and for analysis of acquired complex 4D image data.
