The Facility focuses on fluorescence microscopy and transmission microscopy techniques to local researchers. Here is a brief list of technologies researchers use in the Facility:

  1. General light microscopy services: phase, DIC, mulit-color fluorescence microscopy.
  2. Advanced fluorescence microscopy technology:
    1. Multi-dimensional (fluorescence) time-lapse microscopy.
    2. Deconvolution.
    3. FRET.
    4. FRAP, FLIP.
    5. FLIM.
    6. FCS.
    7. Spectral imaging, Fluorescence Photoactivation/switching.
  3. Transmission electron microscopy - bright field, dark field.
  4. Advanced TEM microscopy:
    1. Tomography,
    2. CryoTEM:high pressure sample freezing, freeze substitution, cryothin sectioning, CryoTEM observation
    3. Immuno-gold labeling,
    4. Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy
  5. Laser microdissection
  6. microinjection
