  • Imaging instrumentation access

    The Imaging Core makes available to the research community modern motorized microscopes capable of multiple modes of imaging of both live and fixed biological samples. In particular, our optical microscopes can perform phase and DIC imaging, widefield fluorescence, ratio imaging, laser scanning and spinning-disk confocal microscopy, dual-color total internal reflection microscopy, 5-D fluorescence imaging, FRAP, photoconversion and FRET imaging.
