The Microscopy Core Facility provides experimental consultation, fee-for-service imaging assistance, and training in and access to several imaging platforms, image acquisition equipment and data analysis software packages. Access is typically reserved for KI members. In some circumstances, access may be available to non-member MIT users (details available on request from the Facility Coordinator).

Services include:

  • light and epifluorescence microscopy
  • deconvolution-based microscopy for sensitive, high-resolution fluorescence imaging
  • spinning disk confocal microscopy
  • total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy
  • spectral karyotyping (SKY) and fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH)
  • laser capture microdissection
  • standard transmission electron and immunoelectron microscopy

New user registration forms are available here. Please complete the form for each new request for service (new instrument training or staff-assisted technical service).

All instrument use (for trained users) is scheduled on MIT Tech Time resource calendars. Calendar URLs and access instructions are available here.
