Imaris Snapshot


The CRL Molecular Imaging Center (MIC) is a shared microscopy resource center specializing in state-of-the-art laser-based fluorescence microscopy techniques. The MIC offers training and access to 20 different light microscope systems, including live cell and in vivo imaging, laser scanning (LSM) and spinning disk (SDC) confocal, multi-photon, fluorescent lifetime imaging (FLIM), light-sheet microscopy (SPIM), super resolution, slide scanning and patterned illumination for optogenetic manipulation and readout. The MIC provides offline computer analysis stations for image processing, visualization and analysis, including GPU workstations. The MIC is accessible to researchers across the Berkeley campus, as well as non-UCB, and non-academic laboratories and companies.

The MIC operates in 3 different buildings on campus, with the primary locations in Life Sciences Addition (LSA), a North-side core in Barker Hall, and a small outpost in the Li Ka Shing Center for Biomedical and Health Sciences (LKS). For access to the MIC resources, please see: Training link

The MIC has several active user groups, an annual microscopy-themed workshop, and an annual short-course for advanced microscopy techniques in neuroscience. Please see meetings and short courses to register for AIM or 4D-AMBC.
