Overview of the platform

Potential new users are provided an overview of how the platform works and basic methodologies used in the lab.

Consultation

All prospective users begin with a consultation to discuss their project plan and identify feasibility for use of the platform.  Contact Lead Microengraving Specialist Shanu Mehta to schedule a consultation.

Single-cell imaging (12+ fluorescence channels)

PicoCell offers multi spectral fluorescence imaging. We offer in-depth training for users for independent equipment use, as well as fully staff-assisted use of equipment.

Microengraving

Users have access to the entire Microengraving process, materials and equipment. We offer in-depth training for users to learn each step of the technique or offer services to run the experiment with our expertise.

Single-cell retrieval

We have two different systems for routine single-cell retrieval. The PicoCell System enables users with simultaneous (fluorescent) imaging and picking of single cells. For robust, high throughput (bright field) picking, we use the ALS CellCelector.  We offer in-depth user training for independent use of both systems as well as fully staff-assisted use of equipment. (More details on equipment can be found here).

Nanowell devices

Users may purchase certain nanowell devices for use in their laboratories. Please contact Shanu Mehta for more information.
