iLab Scheduling Software has arrived!

Attention Users!
The OCF Scheduler is being phased out!
Please see the reservation page for details on how to create, or activate your account.
Important Transition Dates: 
St. Paul Instruments: Completely transitioned to iLab - Effective Immediately.
CCRB Instruments: Completely transitioned to iLab - Effective Immediately.
Jackson Hall Instruments: iLab Transition scheduled August 4th.
Please continue to use old schedular until the facility you use has been transitioned. 
  • If the instrument you use is no longer available on OCF scheduler it has been transitioned to iLab

Super-Resolution is Here!

Temporal resolution of 0.6 sec/frame enables super-resolution time-lapse imaging of dynamic live cell events - Now in Jackson Hall

In structured illumination microscopy (SIM), the unknown cellular ultra-structure is elcidated by analyzing the moiré pattern produced when illuminating the specimen with a known high-frequency patterened illumination. Nikon's Structured Illumination Microscope (N-SIM) realizes super resolution of ~100 nm in multiple colors. In addition, it can continuously capture super-resolution images at a temporal resolution of 0.6 sec/frame, enabling the study of dynamic interactions in living cells.

Please contact Mark Sanders to setup your demo.
