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.


Our newest microscope, the Bruker Vutara 352 super-resolution system will soon be open for business! Contact Andrea Stout for more details.

The next confocal pre-training lecture will take place on Thursday, November 30, 2017, 12:00 —  1:30 pm in room 1101 BRB. Email Andrea Stout before 5:00 pm on Tuesday, November 28 if you want to attend.
