The Brandeis Light Microscopy provides instrumentation, training, and support for faculty and trainees in the acquisition and analysis of data using state of the art imaging equipment. Here, researchers have access to many imaging systems, including transmitted light, TIRF, and epifluorescence microscopes, spinning disc and laser scanning confocal microscopes, 2-photon systems, and super-resolution fluorescence imaging systems. The facility also includes an analysis suite with computers that have licensed image analysis programs installed.
