The image analysis facility houses a Leica DMRD microscope with brightfield, darkfield, phase and epifluorescence capabilities and three-axis stage encoding.
- The microscope is setup for modern immunofluorescence work and has an extensive list of fluorescence filter cubes for multiple labeling applications.
- The microscope has a camera system with two 35mm camera backs and an Optronics DEI 870 color camera.
- The Optronics camera is used for electronically capturing images for documentation or for analysis using the R&M Biometrics Bioquant True Color Windows image analysis system.
- The image analysis software has stereology and three-dimensional reconstruction capabilities built-in.
In addition, the image analysis facility houses a computer workstation with attached scanner and one of the two departmental color laser printers.
