Instruments and Methods

At the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology, we use many different types of equipment - from simple buckets to common light microscopes and highly complex high-tech machines. A unique feature of our institute is the large variety of different imaging techniques. We have a Nano SIMS, a MALDI-Imaging mass spectrometer, various electron microscopes and many different techniques to analyse genes and genoms. All under one roof.
