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.

This is a fluorescent image of mouse proximal colon taken from a novel Toll-like receptor (TLR) 5 reporter mouse. In this section TLR5 is stained with tdTomato (red), epithelial cells are labeled with Epcam (yellow), hematopoeitic cells with CD45 (green), and nuclei with DAPI (cyan). The tissue was sectioned using the Leica cryostat at 8 Ķm and imaged using the Zeiss LSM 710 20x objective, both in the Biological Imaging Facility.
