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.

Particle tracking using Imaris software. MDA-MB-231 cell line expressing Caveolin-1-RFP (red) and Clathrin-GFP (green) were imaged simultaneously in living cell using a dual beam splitter and TIRF microscopy. Dynamics of proteins are then analyzed using Bitplane Imaris software in the BIF. Tracks shown here are color coded for time.
