Microscopy and Photographic Facilities

Yeast cells

The Microscopy Core Facility supports both research and teaching needs. Resources include a scanning electron microscope (SEM), a transmission electron microscope (TEM), a laser scanning confocal microscope, and a direct epifluorescence microscope equipped with a digital CCD camera to allow for FRAP, FRET and high-speed multi-channel time-lapse analyses. This facility is also staffed by a full-time research technician to provide training, oversight, and technical support.

To use shared microscope facilities, contact Dr. Abigail Reft, Biology Department Microscopist. Read more about available Microscopes and Sample Preparation.
