Molecular Imaging Center

Overview of Services

 

The Molecular Imaging Center is a core light microscopy facility that specializes in high-end laser scanning systems, live cell and live organism imaging, and optogenetic microscopes.

 

Imaging modalities include:

• Laser Scanning Confocal Microscopy (LSM)

• Spinning Disk Confocal Microscopy (SDC)

• Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy (SPIM or Lightsheet)

• 2-photon imaging

• in vivo 2-photon Imaging

• Holography: 1p and 2p in combination with SDC or 2p imaging

• Fluorescent Lifetime Imaging (FLIM)

• Super Resolution via Localization (PALM/STORM)

• Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence (TIRF) Microscopy

• Long-term incubation imaging and analysis

  • Slide scanning (fluorescent and brightfield)

• Fluorescent macro scope for imaging and fluorescent dissecting scope for screening

 

We offer training on all the above modalities. We also offer 3D and 4D rendering and analysis software.
