The mission of the Light Microscopy Core Facility (LMCF) is to provide labs from the University of Colorado and the surrounding community with access and support to advanced imaging research instrumentation.

The core is currently housed in the MCDB building at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

The LMCF can assist you with fluorescent and label-free imaging of various cellular structures or tissues in several ways, including:

  • Confocal Imaging – obtaining crisp images with good z-resolution and for 3D imaging
  • Real Time Confocal Imaging –for live cell imaging and monitoring fast dynamics within the cell
  • FRET – monitoring molecular interactions (FLIM-based FRET available) by determining when two molecules are in “close” proximity to one another
  • Combination Imaging with Nomarski/DIC and Fluorescence – colocalize fluorescence labeling with unlabeled cell structures
