Campus Microscopy and Imaging Facility


The Campus Microscopy and Imaging Facility (CMIF) serves University faculty, staff and students as well as researchers outside Ohio State. It offers a full range of microscopes, and support instrumentation allows cell and tissue preparation with immunocytochemistry, in situ hybridization, freeze-fracture, cryo-ultramicrotomy, scanning and transmission electron microscopy.

This facility also functions as the Microscopy Shared Resource (MSR) which facilitates cancer research by providing an accessible centrally-organized resource with technical support for confocal, light, 2D array live cell microscopy, and scanning electron and transmission electron microscopy. Highly qualified faculty and staff provide training and advice for sample preparation, processing fresh tissues, sectioning epoxy-embedded samples, basic microscopy, and advanced training in live animal multiphoton microscopy. The MSR, a part of the larger Campus Microscopy and Imaging Facility under the OSU Office of Research, is managed by the OSUCCC. The MSR is located within OSUCCC space in the Biomedical Research Tower. The ability to offer competitive pricing and exceptional service can be largely attributed to the generous support of outstanding institutional resources, including partnerships with the OSUCCC, the Office of Research, OSU Colleges and Institutes, and state and federal grants. The Microscopy Shared Resource (MSR) gives researchers access to state-of-the-art microscopes and to services ranging from standard light and electron microscopy to leading-edge, live-animal, multiphoton microscopy. MSR experts support high-level cancer research with the latest microscopy techniques.

Small Animal Imaging Core


The Small Animal Imaging Core (SAIC) is a state-of-the-art, small-animal imaging facility available to all investigators and other academic and commercial institutions.

The SAIC houses high-resolution imaging equipment and offers assistance from professionals who are experts in operating each imaging modality, small animal handling, and analytical software support for quantitative image analysis.

Small Animal Metabolic Core


The goal of the Small Animal Metabolic Core is to provide expertise in metabolic studies including whole body metabolism, food intake and physical activity in small rodents.

The OSU Pharmacogenomics Core Laboratory


The Pharmacogenomics Core Lab in the OSU Center for Pharmacogenomics offers state of the art Next Generation Sequencing. We are an Ion Torrent Certified Service Provider for AmpliSeq transcriptomes and exomes as well as whole transcriptome analysis.

University Laboratory Animal Resources


University Laboratory Animal Resources (ULAR) facilitates the humane care and use of animals in biomedical research and teaching at Ohio State and also provides veterinary services. ULAR staff members oversee compliance with federal regulations and guidelines related to animal use and promote the responsible use of animals for the benefit of society.
