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 CNR Biological Imaging Facility (This lab): Confocal, deconvolution, and widefield fluorescence microscopy, live-cell imaging, microtechnique, training in digital image processing and analysis. Located in 381 Koshland Hall
Molecular Imaging Center: Multi-photon laser scanning confocal microscopy, electrophysiology, live-cell imaging. Located in LSA and LKS.
This page gives a general overview of many of the research cores on the Berkeley campus.
The Golub Microscope Collection: Web site dedicated to Dr. Orville J. Golub's collection of antique microscopes from the 17th–20th Centuries. The collection is located in VLSB
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 image is of brown adipose tissue (BAT) in a Rdh10 KO high fat diet mouse model. BAT was sectioned with the Leica CM3050 Cryostat, stained with picrosirius red and imaged using polarized light microscopy on the Zeiss AxioImager M1 to visualize type 1 collagen fibers in orange to red and type 3 collagen fibers in yellow to green.
