The Imaging Lab

The Imaging Lab is an image acquisition facility containing a microscope suite and a digital photography studio. The microscope suite houses four optical microscopes with dedicated digital cameras and image capture software. Three of the microscopes are in individual light-tight labs, and one is housed within a Faraday cage to reduce electrical noise. The fourth microscope is in a prep area which also contains a laminar flow hood and incubator. The digital photography studio contains scanning and printing stations, and a shooting area equipped with a digital camera, a seamless photographic background, and tungsten studio lights. The Center’s printing capabilities include two large-format printers for jobs ranging from conference posters to exhibition-quality prints. Smaller format photo-quality printers are also available.
