The ICBM upgraded the Yokogawa spinning disk microscope system to a new CSUX system. Equipped with an environmental chamber, the Yokogawa system is ideal for high-speed and long-term 3D microscopy studies of living cell. The upgraded system supports even faster image acquisitions (1000 scans per second), with higher field uniformity and a more user-friendly software interface. This upgrade was made possible by generous contributions from IU School of Medicine, the Division of Nephrology, the Department of Medicine, the Center for Diabetes and Metabolic Diseases and the Department of Microbiology.
The ICBM acquired an ISS Alba Fast FLIM fluorescence lifetime imaging system, bequeathed by Richard Day upon his retirement. Based upon a confocal microscope platform and a white-light laser, the ISS system supports frequency-domain-based fluorescence lifetime imaging and fluorescence correlation microscopy.
The 2021 O’Brien Center Microscopy Workshop, held virtually over Zoom was a resounding success with more than 100 online participants throughout the four-day program. The proceedings of the meeting will be presented in a special issue of Frontiers in Physiology to be published early in 2022.
The ICBM upgraded the Imaris software to significantly extend its capabilities for three-dimensional visualization and quantitative analysis. We offer now version 9.82, Core facility package. View an overview of Imaris and its upgraded capabilities at imaris.oxinst.com. The purchase was made possible by generous contributions from the Department of Medicine, Chandan Sen, Tarek Ashkar, Bob Bacallao and Amelia Linnemann.
The ICBM purchased HALO Image Analysis Software, the software of choice for exploration and analysis of large-scale, highly multiplexed fluorescence image data, such as that produced by the Akoya CODEX system. View an overview of HALO’s capabilities at indicalab.com/halo. This purchase was made possible by generous contributions from the Department of Medicine.
