LSI Imaging is a core research imaging facility of the Life Sciences Institute with state of the art fluorescence microscopy equipment. Applications include FRET, FRAP, TIRF and high throughput content screening (small molecule and siRNA).

It provides access, user training and technical assistance for confocal microscopy (point laser scanning or spinning disk), high throughput imaging and image deconvolution, 3D reconstruction and quantitative analysis.

LSI Imaging is a virtual facility. Microscopy equipment is located in proximity to expertise and access coordinated through a centralized website. Our goal is to facilitate access to equipment, promote the exchange of expertise and enable quality science.
