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.


ATTENTION SEM USERS: Due to space renovations taking place in the EMRL in the basement of Anatomy-Chemistry, the FEI Quanta 250 scanning electron microscope will be down from May 21 until approximately June 22. 

The next pre-training lecture will take place on Thursday, June 21, 12:00 — 1:30 pm in room 1101 BRB.  Email Andrea Stout before 5 pm on Tuesday, June 19 if you want to attend.
