CDB Microscopy Core

The Cell & Developmental Biology (CDB) Microscopy Core is a full-service facility providing 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 Zeiss Z.1 Lightsheet system, four 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 confocal pre-training lecture will take place on Thursday, October 5, 2017, 1:00 —  2:30 pm in room 1101 BRB (Note the departure from the usual start time!). Email Andrea Stout before 5:00 pm on Tuesday, October 3 if you want to attend.

It's time for our annual survey! If you have been using our core's services (or if you're a PI and your lab members have been using them), please take a few minutes to answer a few questions here. Survey will remain open until October 13th, 2017.
