About the Core

With the growing use of recombinant fluorescent proteins for cellular biochemical analyses, microscopy has become an essential tool for biochemists. The Microscopy Core houses four epifluorescent microscopes and an A1R confocal microscope.  All of the microscopes are equipped with digital cameras for image acquisition. The goal of this core is to provide training and consultation for students, staff, and faculty in the use of our microscopes.  We provide expertise in a variety of fluorescent techniques and digital image acquisition that allow users to transition to more complex procedures. There is no charge for any of the services in the Microscopy Core.

"No knob-diddling." Persons using the Microscopy Core should NOT alter the knob settings of the microscopes unless authorized.
