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.


The next pre-training lecture will take place on Thursday March 7, 12:00 — 1:30 pm in room 1101 BRB.  Email Andrea Stout before 5 pm on Tuesday, March 5 if you want to attend.  Dates for future lectures may be found here.

Tuesday, February 26: Geoff Daniels from Leica Microsystems will be giving a presentation on the latest technological advances available on Leica confocal and multi-photon systems. 11 am — 12 pm in room 1412 BRB.   On Tuesday & Wednesday Feb. 26 & 27, Anthony Choo from Leica will be  conducting a hands-on workshop demonstrating Leica's Lightening and Navigator add-ons for confocals. Room 01-126D Smilow.  Please RSVP here for either the seminar OR the hands-on workshop.
