Leduc Bioimaging Facility

The Leduc Bioimaging Facility is open to all investigators, providing equipment and training dedicated to high-resolution imaging in the life sciences. It is visited by approximately 100 middle school and high school students yearly. For many students, this is their first visit to a university/first contact with scientific research. The facility includes a Transmission Electron Microscope, a Scanning Electron Microscope, three Fluorescence Microscopes, a Fluorescence Stereomicroscope, four Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopes, a Multiphoton Microscope, and software for image analysis. The facility also maintains equipment for sample preparation, including a critical point dryer, sputter coater, and microtomes for ultrathin sectioning.
