Forsyth Imaging Core

Director: Bidlack, Felicitas, Ph.D.

Location: 245 First Street, 5th Floor Science Center, room 5123, Cambridge, MA 02142


The Imaging Core maintains three light microscopes for internal and external use:

      1. The Zeiss Axio Observer inverted microscope with epi-fluorescence illumination by a Colibri.2 LED and equipped with a Hamamatsu Orca-Flash4 camera is great for live cell transmitted and reflected light imaging.

      2. The Zeiss LSM 780 confocal inverted microscope has 34 channel detectors for spectral imaging and linear unmixing capabilities for thick specimens and experiments with multiple fluorophores. Environmental control is also available for these 2 systems.

      3. The Zeiss LSM 880 confocal upright microscope has a multialkali detector capable of capturing 3 channels simultaneously, a 32-channel Airyscan detector for super-resolution, Fast Airyscan, environmental housing, and a 20x CLARITY objective for imaging cleared tissue specimens.

Associated support services include sample preparation assistance, imaging, and image analysis guidance on a variety of sample types.
