Microscopy Facilities
at the University of California, Berkeley

There are three core laboratories on campus that offer expertise, instruction, and instrumentation in optical microscopy for research.

The Biological Imaging Facility is a core microscope imaging lab at the University of California, Berkeley.
The BIF specializes in Widefield, Confocal, Deconvolution, Spinning Disk, and Super-Resolution fluorescence microscopy
(SIM, PALM, TIRF).

The green fibers are anterogradely labeled from DA injections in the laryngeal motor cortex and the red cells are retrogradely labeled from injections into the cricothyroid muscle of Egyptian fruit bats. The blue is a DAPI stain. This image shows that the laryngeal motor cortex may directly synapse onto nucleus ambiguus motor neurons that innervate the cricothyroid muscles. Image was deconvolved using HuygensPro in the BIF.
