Cell Imaging

The Cell Imaging Facility provides training and consultation on the use of confocal microscopy, widefield automated microscopy, and software analysis tools for quantitative analysis of image data. The facility has two Olympus FV1000 Spectral confocals. We have also added a new Nikon Ti automated microscope for live cell imaging. Automated microscopes with one of five different stage incubators are available (C02, temp., humidity) are also available for live cell imaging. Metamorph, Imaris and Volocity software are available for 2D and 3D analysis of image data.

Web calendar for scheduling appointments: This system will soon be core wide and uses the campus UNID system. Upon first login you will be asked for information and for which PI there is an authorized chartfield registered with the cores office. If you have problems logging in contact Susan at susanz@cores.utah.edu or Jeff at jware@cores.utah.edu.

Before working with us, please take the time to read our Microscopy Core Policies. To make a reservation to use our equipment or services, please go to resource.cores.utah.edu.

Please include this statement when acknowledging us in your research:

Imaging was performed at the Fluorescence Microscopy Core Facility, a part of the Health Sciences Cores at the University of Utah. Microscopy equipment was obtained using a NCRR Shared Equipment Grant # 1S10RR024761-01.

A variety of instrumentation is available at the Cell Imaging Core.  Click on links below for further information on these systems.
