Cell Imaging Core Facility
The Cell Imaging Core was established in 1999 and provides state-of-the-art cell and tissue imaging technologies, including:
- light and fluorescence microscopy
- stereo and confocal microscopy
- infrared imaging
- multi-well live cell time lapse imaging,
- and laser capture microdissection (LCM)
Images can be acquired using a variety of video and CCD cameras and then analyzed and manipulated with sophisticated image analysis software programs. The Core manager is available for consultation before and during scheduled imaging sessions. Users receive technical support and detailed instruction in the use of all Core equipment. The Core manager routinely monitors equipment performance and regularly receives updated technical training from manufacturers in order to meet the constantly evolving needs of Kimmel Cancer Center faculty members.
