Overview of Services

LSI Imaging is a core research imaging facility of the Life Sciences Institute within the University of British Columbia. The LSI Imaging core has state of the art fluorescence microscopy equipment. Applications include FRET, FRAP, TIRF and high throughput content screening (small molecule and siRNA).


It provides access, user training and technical assistance for super-resolution microscopy, confocal microscopy (point laser scanning or spinning disk), high throughput imaging and image deconvolution, 3D reconstruction and quantitative analysis.


LSI Imaging is a virtual facility. Microscopy equipment is located in proximity to expertise and access coordinated through a centralized website. Our goal is to facilitate access to equipment, promote the exchange of expertise and enable quality science.


Our imaging systems include advanced widefield fluorescence microscopes, spinning disk confocal- and laser scanning confocal microscopes, as well as automated systems for high content fluorescence analysis.
