Center for Neuroscience (CNR) - Imaging and Cell Analysis Core

The CNR Imaging and Cell Analysis Core provides state-of-the-art equipment for various types of microscopy and imaging for researchers.

The CNR Imaging and Cell Analysis Core has four confocal microscopes available: the Leica SPE, the Nikon A1R, the standard Leica SP8, and the Leica Falcon SP8 with a high-speed resonant scanner, fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) capability and deconvolution software. For investigators interested in multiphoton imaging, please contact Dr. Martin Hunter at the Tufts Advanced Microscopic Imaging Center.

Training for Instrument Use

All new imaging core users must be trained on confocal or TIRF microscopes before signing up to use them. For training on the Nikon confocal microscope, please contact Dr. Samantha You. To use the Nikon TIRF microscope, please contact Dr. Selene Lomoio. For use of any Leica instrument, please contact Dr. Martin Hunter. Access imaging core sign-up calendars here.
