Confocal

Standard confocal microscopes, including our newest addition, a Leica SP8 inverted, are located at three convenient locations around campus. Special features vary, inquire if you have specific needs. More...

Live Cell

We now have three live cell confocal microscopes, with environmental chambers, photostimulation, and capable of imaging dynamics from seconds to days. More...

Widefield

A range of widefield microscopes are available; optimized for high resolution imaging with z-stacks for deconvolution, initial screenings, histology, and multiwavelength fluorescence. More...

Multiphoton

  • Our Leica SP8 multi photon can be set up for electrophysiological experiments as well as deep tissue/slice imaging and more. More...
  • Our Zeiss 710 with Chameleon Vision-S laser (690nm-1050nm) is set-up for small animal and cell/tissue imaging. More...

Super Resolution

  • The GE DeltaVision OMX Blaze offers super-resolution imaging using 3D structured illumination (3D-SIM) as well as super fast widefield acquisition. For more information please contact Neil Anthony at nantho2@emory.edu  More...
  • The Nikon Structured Illumination Microscope (SIM) increases the resolution of standard fluorescence microscopy by two. More...

Total Internal Reflection Microscopy (TIRF)

TIRF is ideal for imaging events and dynamics at or near the adherent cell membrane. More...

Image Analysis Workstations

Image analysis workstations offering a variety of advanced analysis packages are available at three sites. More...
