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.
