Facility Details

The Cell Sciences Imaging Facility (CSIF) provides high resolution, state-of-the-art technologies for imaging and analyzing the molecular and structural organization of cells and tissue. The facility offers sophisticated and demanding microscopy techniques (e.g. STORM, TIRF, SIM, FLIM, LLS, gSTED, airyscan, lightning, 2-photon live cell imaging, photo-activation and uncaging, array tomography, immuno-electron microscopy, high pressure freezing...) to Stanford University and industry researchers. The CSIF is organized into three imaging cores: the Fluorescence Microscopy Core (FMC) which houses multi-photon, confocal and deconvolution microscopes, codex services and image analysis software, the Electron Microscopy Core (EMC), which houses high resolution scanning and transmission electron microscopes and the Array Tomography Core (ATC) that provides complete array tomography services. The CSIF, in addition to its Director, Jon Mulholland, is staffed by 7 research associates that manage the instruments, provide expertise and training in electron and light microscopy.
