Microscopy Core


The Microscopy Core is housed on the second floor of the Biosciences Building. Most of the equipment is contained in a dedicated microscopy suite. There are several inverted fluorescent microscopes and three confocal microscopes. In addition, there is an IR-based imager.

At present, all of the equipment is available to investigators for use after certified training. Use of the confocal microscopes has an hourly charge. (There is no microscopy service.)
