About the Facility
About the Facility: 

The Biochemistry Optical Core (BOC) provides state-of-the-art instrumentation for super-resolution light microscopic imaging. Expertise and advice is available for the design of experiments involving these techniques; and for the development of grants and manuscripts involving super-resolution and standard light microscopic technologies.  

Imaging techniques available through the core now include:

Standard fluorescence

Super resolution microscopy

STORM/PALM

SIM

Live cell, long-term imaging

Point scanning confocal

Deconvolution

3D particle tracking

Fluorescence spectral detection

TIRF 

FRET

FRAP/FLIM

Photactivation/uncaging

Calcium imaging

Single molecule imaging
