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).

This is the outer nuclear layer of an 80 micron retina section from a two month old mouse. DAPI (blue) indicates the nuclei of the photoreceptors found in the outer nuclear layer, and recoverin (green) stains the cell bodies and the outer segments (green protrusions). Certain populations of cone bipolar cells in the inner nuclear layer also express recoverin, a calcium binding protein involved in the recovery phase of phototransduction. This image was taken on the LSM710 confocal microscope in the BIF.
