The MIF is a comprehensive microscopy and computer imaging facility available to the Department of Biological Sciences and the scientific community. It was established with support of the Department of Biological Sciences, the Vice President for Research, and the School of Pharmacy. The Imaging Facility provides users with sophisticated image acquisition and analysis. Any light microscopic application can benefit from the high quality images that can be acquired with our cooled CCD camera and motorized, computer controlled microscope. Series of images can be assembled to produce a three dimensional reconstruction, stereo pairs, extended focus, or anaglyph images. (use red-green glasses to view images a,b below). Sample quantification in numerous modalities is possible. This capability is useful in a wide range of studies from the biological sciences(quantifying and measuring cells or cellular components) to the material sciences (particle analysis).
If you would like to view facility fees or make on line reservations for the Leica inverted microscope please see this page of guidlines.
