Luxendo, a Bruker Company


Luxendo was founded in 2015 as spin-off from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). We develop and manufacture proprietary light-sheet fluorescence microscopy instruments. Since May 2017 LUXENDO is part of the Fluorescence Microscopy Business Unit within Bruker‘s Nano Surfaces Division.
As a partner in this project, Luxendo intends to cooperate with the EMBL towards training of the Fellows. Luxendo can host up to two Fellows per year in the period 2020-2024 through secondments and introduce them to the ways of working, instrumentation and procedures at Luxendo. Duration of secondments will be between 2 and 6 months and will be arranged in communication with the Fellow. Fellows who will do secondments at Luxendo will come from the field related or complementary to the field of work of Luxendo.

At Luxendo, Fellows will have a possibility to learn optical concepts, light-sheet microscopy design and creating application-centric solutions. The Fellows will also have a chance to get acquainted with the operation of post-acquisition processing software and light-sheet microscopes.

Luxendo will dedicate supervision capacity for each fellow on secondments. During secondments, Fellows can stay employed by EMBL.
