OHSU

Instrumentation

The ALM Core has a number of different imaging setups that each excel at different applications.


Laser-Scanning Confocals

Our laser-scanning confocal microscopes are equipped with highly corrected objectives with high-numerical apertures for optimal multi-color imaging and optical sectioning.


Spinning Disk Confocal

Spinning disk confocal microscopy outperforms laser-scanning microscopy for live-cell imaging. The setup accepts mutli-well plates for image-based screening assays.


High-Resolution Widefield

Deconvolution excels over confocal microscopy for thin, sparsely labeled specimens. 

Our most economical solution for imaging fluorescence and colorimetric stains.


Super-Resolution Microscopy

Structured illumination-based super-resolution microscopy is a very accessible super-resolution technology. The setup is also equipped for single-molecule localization techniques, such as PALM and STORM.


Multi-Photon Microscope

  • Zeiss LSM 7MP on  upright imaging stand

This setup is built for imaging intravitally in live rodents.


Incubator Microscope

  • Essen Biosciences IncuCyte ZOOM

Imaging device inside a tissue-culture incubator to follow cell growth and differentiation over days or quantify cell migration, angiogenesis and neurite outgrowth over time.


Image Analysis and Presentation

We have several high-end workstations with image analysis and processing software suites to analyze and present your multi-dimensional data.
