  • About the Facility

    The Waksman Confocal Microscope Core Facility provides training and consultation on the use of our confocal microscopes. The facility has two Leica TCS confocal microscopes, the SP8 and SP5 II, as well as a workstation. Our scanning confocal microscopes are capable of high resolution imaging of labeled cell components in three dimensional space by optical sectioning.  Imaging can be done with most standard fluorophores in live or fixed samples.
