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).

These cells are Magnetospirillum magneticum AMB-1 strain, that contain plasmids to express soluble Halo proteins. The cells were double-stained with Halo ligand JF549 and Mito tracker green. Some cells show both green and red signal. Some cells show only strong green signal, but not red Halo ligand staining, indicating possibly that no Halo proteins are expressed in these cells. The image was acquired on the Elyra PS.1 Structured Illumination Microscope in the BIF. Scalebar = 0.8m
