Confocal Imaging

Olympus FluoView FV1000
The Olympus FluoView FV1000 is for observation of cell and tissue morphology.

Confocal (Laser-Scanning) Imaging Core Facility (CICF)

The Olympus FLUOVIEW FV1000 confocal laser scanning microscope is for multi-dimensional observation of cell and tissue morphology and for precise molecular localization. It uses a laser light stimulation scanner to achieve simultaneous targeted laser stimulation and imaging for real-time visualization of rapid cell responses. The FV1000 also measures diffusion coefficients of intracellular molecules, quantifying molecular kinetics.

Cell Culture Laboratory

The Cell Culture Laboratory is a Biosafety Level 1/Biosafety Level 2 facility. It is dedicated to cell work only.
