Confocal Microscopy Facility (includes Nikon Center of Excellence)

    Equipment/facility: Facility

      Description

      The Confocal Microscopy Facility including the Nikon Center of Excellence provides laser scanning confocal microscopy and super resolution microscopy (structured illumination and localization types), which offer the highest light microscope resolution obtainable. This technology can image single or multiple labeled specimens and can be used to study intact samples, such as developing fish embryos or sections from brain and other tissues that have been tagged with fluorescent probes.
