The University Imaging Centers (UIC) compose a network of core imaging facility locations for advanced optical imaging and basic electron microscopy located within the AHC/Medical School (1-151 Jackson Hall, Minneapolis) and College of Biological Sciences (23 Snyder Hall, St. Paul) on the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Campus.
The UIC cores serve internal and external research clients in the design of imaging experiments, choice of and training on suitable imaging systems, and subsequent image processing, visualization and analysis. The UIC provides more than two dozen advanced imaging systems including: macro spectral confocal microscopy; wide-field light and fluorescence microscopy; spinning disk confocal; four (4) laser-scanning confocal microscopes; multi-photon/Second Harmonic Generation microscopes; total internal reflectance microscope (TIRF); laser capture micro-dissection; live cell imaging systems; scanning and transmission electron microscopy; whole animal fluorescence, bioluminescence and chemiluminescence imagers; gel, print and film scanners; poster printers; full sample preparation capabilities; along with 4 full-time and 4 part-time experienced staff members.
UIC anticipates expanding more aggressively in the areas of live-cell / live-animal imaging (intravital) and super resolution microscopy during the 2012 year.
