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.
Training sessions are available upon request for the Confocal Laser-Scanning Imaging Core Facility.
Michigan Tech offers Confocal Microscopy” (CH4800-01/CH6800-01), a Special Topics Course. Next year this course will be substituted with the “Introduction to Pharmaceutical Analysis” course.
