at the University of California, Berkeley

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

This is an image of mouse macrophages that have produced a large number of lipid droplets in response to a Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. Macrophage nuclei are stained with DAPI, the lipid droplets are stained green with BODIPY, and the bacteria (red) are stained with PI. The image was acquired using the 100x/1.46 objective on the Zeiss Elyra PS.1 SIM microscope in the BIF.
