The DHLRI Microscopy Core Lab provides instruments for both wide-field and confocal microscopy. Specimens can be imaged by either transmitted light or epi-fluorescence. Images can be captured as single planes, z-stacks through the depth of the specimen, or as time-series. The core also has software for post-acquisition processing and analysis, as well as 3-D reconstruction of z-stack images. A tunable infrared laser is available for multiphoton fluorescence imaging in live specimens. Core personnel are available to assist you in instrument setup and specimen analysis. Training is also available for investigators wishing to work independently.
