Microscopy Lab

Welcome to the Microscopy Lab! The Microscopy lab offers tools for biological research as well as technical assistance and training. The lab has three major microscopes - a transmission electron microscope (TEM), a scanning electron Microscope (SEM) and a laser-scanning confocal microscope (LSCM) equipped with a multi-photon (MP) laser. The microscopy lab also has both compound and stereomicroscopes for bright field and fluorescence imaging. Ancillary equipment necessary for sample preparation is also available.


Microscopy lab users can request full technical guidance, or once trained, can use the equipment independently. The lab manager is accessible by email, phone, or text message on or off campus. Additionally, the equipment availability is posted on the calendar below. The lab manager updates the calendar in real time. All microscopy requests need to be emailed with a project application formĀ  (see tab to the left) to the lab manager stantond2@ufl.edu at least 24 hours in advance.
