CDB Microscopy Core

The Cell & Developmental Biology (CDB) Microscopy Core provides personalized assistance on all aspects of imaging, from tips on sample preparation to training on one of our microscopes to assistance with image data analysis. Our facility currently houses seven confocal microscopes, a Bruker Vutara 352 super-resolution system, a Zeiss Z.1 Lightsheet system, three widefield light microscopes, and several computers dedicated to image processing and analysis.  In addition, we offer scanning electron microscope (SEM) sample preparation and imaging.
