The function of the Confocal Core is to provide services in confocal microscopy, light microscopy and immunostaining for cells and tissues including:
* Confocal microscopy
* Brightfield and fluorescence microscopy
* Immunoperoxidase and immunofluorescence staining
1. First time users schedule an initial meeting of the P.I., future users and core staff. During this meeting, the project and experimental details will be discussed. Core staff could suggest which microscopy modality works best for the project as well as consultation on strategies to accomplish the imaging task. Users have the option of choosing service work or independent use.
2. Schedule a service work session or a customized microscope training session with one of the core staff members.
Includes both visualization and quantification.
Includes both immunofluorescence and immunoperoxidase staining.
Used with the Zeiss Axioimager M1 Epifluorescence and Brightfield Microscope.
