Services:
  • Enhanced Neuroimaging Core access policy

    "Although the facility primarily supports NeuroDiscovery investigators studying neurodegenerative disease, we welcome inquires from other users.

    All users must complete training before access to the facility is granted.

    Experienced users are provided access out of the regular hours with consent from the Facility Manager. Only those users with sufficient training on the microscopes can gain access to the facility during off-peak hours."

  • ImageJ Image Analysis Service

    Our core provides image analysis service on custom plugin/macro-script for ImageJ; Journal for Metamorph and custom image analysis protocols. Analysis service includes image filtering, cell counting, image segmentation and measurement, batch data process, particle analysis. The service charge is based on hourly rate same as the microscopy usage. For projects with images taken in our core, this service is free.
