RCMI Biophotonics Core

Director: Witt, Colleen, Ph.D.

Summary:

The mission of the Biophotonics Core is to provide cutting edge technology for the study and manipulation of biological samples using light. A state-of-the-art inverted confocal/multi-photon system by Zeiss, complete with oxygen and temperature control, permits long-term in-depth imaging of live tissues. Our instrumentation also includes technology to probe at the molecular level for protein-protein interactions within live samples. The core partners with the RCMI Computational Systems Biology Core to create a data acquisition and analysis pipeline that ensures a streamlined and seamless workflow for researchers. To ensure that the full potential of core technology is realized, the Biophotonics Core provides personal training in the use of all instrumentation, as well as the latest methods of data analysis.

Services

  • Instrument access ( Access service )

    "All users must undergo training on the use of instrumentation prior to having access to the facility. Upon the completion of training, user will be granted access to the main entrance door and to each room housing the instrumentation for which the user is trained to use independently."

  • Instrument training ( Training service )

    "To ensure that the full potential of core technology is realized, the Biophotonics Core provides personal training in the use of all instrumentation. All users must undergo training on the use of instrumentation prior to having access to the facility. Training will be considered complete once core staff deems the user capable of independently operating the relevant instrument and can do so using proper principles of image acquisition. The amount of training will vary depending upon user experience. All training is done by appointment and requests should be sent to the Director via email."
