About Cell Sciences Imaging

The Cell Sciences Imaging Shared Resource offers state-of-the-art fluorescence and electron microscopy services to SCI researchers. The Resource provides investigators with advanced imaging systems to image and analyze the molecular and structural organization of cells and tissue at a microscopic level, crucial for researchers studying the biological mechanisms involved in cancer.

The Resource offers the following services to SCI members:

  • Fluorescence microscopy services
  • Electron microscopy services
  • Data management 

The Resource operates ten advanced light and electron microscope systems that provide confocal, deconvolution, 2-photon and super resolution, as well as electron microscopy technologies.

For electron microscopy, the CSIF maintains a full-service laboratory that offers sample preparation and training for both transmission and scanning electron microscopy technologies.
