By registering for the Central Teaching Platform "Core Unit Virtual Microscopy", you have access to the digital network as well as to the databases at any time. You can perform microscopy from home, on the road with the tablet or via smartphone and of course at work, conveniently online. All recordings are thus available to you live and individually linkable.

Registration via Uni-Login

As a student or employee of the University of Leipzig you have account data which you can use uni-internally. This is also the case here: Log in with your usual university login (abbreviation of letter-number combination; without domain) and get immediate access to the CUVM after confirmation of the privacy agreement. You can use the program at work, in your home office and on the road with all Internet-capable end devices. A connection to the VPN is not required.


The histological preparations of tissues and organs, about 150 slides, are made available to students in digital form with Virtual Microscopy for self-study "For relaxed microscopy in the shared flat, from home", completely independent of opening hours or other obstacles of an institute.

In 2016 Prof. Johannes Seeger, Veterinary Anatomy Institute, applied for the establishment of a cross-faculty platform for Virtual Microscopy. The University of Leipzig acquired the special software with the campus licenses for 10 years.

In May 2017 the time had finally come: The Central Teaching Platform "Core Unit Virtual Microscopy" (CUVM) of the University of Leipzig was presented by the managing director of VMscope GmbH Berlin, Kai Saeger, in the faculty council of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.

With the establishment of the "Core Unit Virtual Microscopy", matrices of veterinary and human medicine and their lecturers use this e-learning platform. Be it as a preparation for certificates and exams, to check the own knowledge level or to discuss with the lecturer via teleconference.

The following institutes and clinics currently use the Central Teaching Platform:
