  • Zeiss Lattice Light Sheet (coming soon!)
  • Super-Resolution Microscopy
  • Laser Capture Microdissection System
  • Multiphoton Microscopy
  • Confocal Microscopy
  • Digital Light Microscopy
  • Computation
  • Deconvolution
  • Quantitative Analysis
  • Image Enhancement
  • 3D Reconstruction

User Consultations

Investigators are encouraged to consult with the director and staff to address technical questions. 

User Training

The sophistication of the instrumentation requires that investigators who expect to use the equipment receive training. Additional technical assistance will be available as needed to support use of the instruments.

Hours of Operation

The Cell and Tissue Imaging Core will be available for use Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm and will follow the Augusta University calendar for holidays.

Access on nights/weekends is given only to authorized users.
