The Microscope Imaging Network (MIN)
A Foundational Core Facility funded in part through a core infrastructure grant from the Office of the Vice President for Research. Each instrument has its own supervisor and training mechanism so be sure to visit the individual web sites for each instrument listed below for additional contact information.

In addition to the listed instrumentation, the MIN provides microscope development services. If the instrumentation available in the MIN does not meet your needs, or if you are interested in pursuing a specific imaging technique that cannot be done with the current instrumentation, please contact our director for a consultation. In some cases, we are able to utilize novel research tools under development elsewhere on campus for preliminary imaging studies.
Alternatively, we may be able to design new imaging platforms tailored to specific applications. Please contact our director to schedule a consult.
