We are also a part of, a national network of cytometrists and cytometry core facilities of the DGfZ / Deutsche Gesellschaft für Zytometrie.



Lighthouse is a member unit of the Microscopy and Image Analysis Platform (MIAP), a tri-national network of microscopy and image analysis facilities from throughout the region, including Freiburg, Basel, Strasbourg and the surrounding area.

Overview of MIAP Partner Units


Please note: Our user fees cover only a small fraction of our total running costs, most of which in fact are covered by our home institutes (Klinik für Innere Medizin I, Centrum für Chronische Immundefizienz (CCI), Tumorzentrum Freiburg/DKTK and the Medical Faculty. The majority of our machines were financed with the help of outside sources such as the DFG, Land Baden-Württemberg, or BMBF. We therefore depend on proper acknowledgement and listing of the project numbers below.

Lighthouse Core Facility is funded in part by the Medical Faculty, University of Freiburg (Project Numbers 2021/A2-Fol; 2021/B3-Fol) and the DFG (Project Number 450392965).


Publications, posters or presentations that make use of services or data collected at the facility or by its staff should list these contributions/project numbers accordingly.

Thank you.
