The ALM Core has a number of different imaging setups that excel at different applications. Below is an overview of instruments located in the Knight Cancer Research Building.
See our Services page for a full list of instruments by modality.
Laser Scanning Confocal
Zeiss LSM 880. Laser scanning confocal microscope on an inverted imaging stand. Our laser scanners are equipped with objectives that have high numerical apertures for optimal multi-color imaging and optical sectioning.
Spinning Disk Confocal
Yokogawa CSU-X1 on Zeiss Axio Observer. Spinning disk confocal microscope on an inverted imaging stand. Spinning disk confocal imaging outperforms laser-scanning microscopy for live-cell imaging. This setup accepts mutli-well plates for image-based screening assays.
High Resolution Widefield
Zeiss AxioScan.Z1 Slide Scanner. Fully automated imaging of routine histological and fluorescent sections.
