University Imaging Centers Presents: Visualsonics Vevo 2100 Ultrasound; Basic and Advanced Training.
Funding from a 2011 U of M i3 award was earmarked for super-resolution optical microscopy to be added to the University Imaging Center's capabilities as part of a larger program addressing the advanced imaging needs across the University. After extensive evaluation and demonstrations, structured illumination microscopy (SIM) was identified as the best compromise between performance, flexibility and ease of use, key factors for a core facility at this stage of technology. In addition to Structured Illumination Microscopy, the scope will be equipped with resonant confocal, TIRF/SIM and spectral detection.
In parallel, the University Imaging Centers new Cancer Cardiovascular Research Building site will be equipped with Nikon C2 NiE spectral confocal and Nikon TiE wide-field deconvolution microscopes.
We expect the new equipment to be extraordinarily useful to University researchers and will provide workshops and demos in the near future to familiarize our user base with our new capabilities.
