Leica Science Lab
This Microscopy Knowledge Portal lets you learn, share and contribute microscopy knowledge. It offers scientific research and teaching material on micrsocpy-related topics, with the content designed to support beginners, experienced practitioners and scientists in their everyday work and experiments.
FocalPlane is a microscopy community site, hosted by Journal of Cell Science and encompasses all fields where biology meets microscopy. This is a curated online meeting place to connect people, products, resources and information relating to microscopy.
OMERO is a client-server software for managing, visualising and analyzing microscopy images and associated metadata. As a scientist, OMERO can handle all your images using a secure central repository, from microscope to publication. Using the power of Bio-Formats, OMERO supports over 140 image file formats, including major microscope formats. The OMERO client is free to download.
Open Source Optics
Open source optics refers to optics, optical equipment, opto-electronics and fiber optic designs that are designed in the same fashion as free and open source software (FOSS). This is a collection of 3-D printable optical components.
