The Advanced Microscopy Core of Joslin ‘s Diabetes Research Center facilitates the ready availability of sophisticated morphological techniques by providing electron microscopic services, a confocal microscope facility, a laser capture microdissection facility, as well as preparation of frozen or paraffin sections from tissues provided by investigators Additionally we provide protocols, analysis and interpretation.
Since the core is subsidized by the NIH funded DRC, members of the Joslin DRC have priority and a discounted fee-for-service. Use by outsiders will be considered if there is time available, with NIH grant holders given preference.
"This microscope with 6 laser lines including two photon, 3 spectral detection channels allows multifluorescent spectral imaging, ion imaging, enhanced 3-D examinations, and manipulations for FRET or FRAP. Live cell imaging is possible."
"After training, researchers can use independently with sign up on Intranet."
"Immunochemistry on ultrastructural level."
"Arcturus Pixcell II Laser capture microscope and accessories. After being trained, researchers use it independently."
