Core Microscopy Facility

La Jolla, California Campus

The Core Microscopy Facility at Scripps Research provides researchers with equipment and expertise required for multi-dimensional imaging of cells and tissues at high resolution and to perform quantitative image analysis. Resources include widefield, confocal, multi-photon, TIRF, super-resolution and electron microscopy, as well as equipment for live cell imaging and image analysis. Services include sample preparation, imaging, molecular localization, and image analysis. In addition to providing access to advanced instrumentation, this facility, staffed by experts, is a source of instruction and training and constitutes a major educational resource. The Facility staff provides training, technical support, sample preparation, imaging assistance, collaboration and consultation.

The Core Microscopy Facility operates on a fee-for-services basis. For non-affiliated researchers, please contact Dr. Scott Henderson, for Scripps Researchers click here.
