The DRC Microscopy Core consolidates, enhances and disseminates Diabetes Center resources and expertise in tissue and cell imaging technologies. Confocal fluorescence, widefield fluorescence, high throughput fluorescence and brightfield microscopes are available directly within the DRC Microscopy Core. Image quantification and analysis is performed at dedicated workstations.

Research laboratories are provided with ready access to and training in the proper use of the equipment. The Core distributes the costs of maintaining sophisticated equipment across its many users through a recharge system. If available, Core personnel also may directly perform studies on a fee-basis. The Core, in collaboration with similar Core facilities on campus, also helps to identify emerging technologies that will enhance multiple research programs and coordinates the acquisition and maintenance of those facilities. Feedback on available or missing services is always appreciated.
