Advanced Microscopy Shared ResourceFeaturing state-of-the-art microscopy equipment including the laser scanning confocal microscope, laser capture microdissection system, live cell and time-lapse imaging and a variety of upright, inverted fluorescent microscopes, the Advanced Microscopy shared resource provides our fellow researchers access to the cutting-edge imaging technology for enhancing their basic, clinical or translational studies of human diseases and biomedical experiments using either fixed or live cells or tissues. 
The Advanced Microscopy shared resource provides scientific and technical expertise to aid in experiment design, specimen preparation, optimal image acquisition and training courses to help researchers get access and use the advanced microscope systems more efficiently.

The specific objectives of this shared resource are to offer:

  • A powerful array of contemporary microscopes and highly specialized imaging tools.
  • Assist researchers with their microscopy experiment design.
  • Provide training courses to new users allowing them to become familiar with sophisticated equipment quickly and efficiently.
  • Provide researchers with expert consultation in sample preparation, image acquisition, data analysis for presentations, grant applications and publications.

The Advanced Microscopy shared resource of Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey is a specialized service facility that supports the cancer research efforts of our members. Please remember to acknowledge the valuable services provided by the shared resource in your research papers, publications, and grant applications. The following acknowledgement statement is recommended:

"Images were acquired and/or image processing and analysis were performed for this study (manuscript) at the Advanced Microscopy Shared Resource of Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey."

(Note: please also consider including the names of individuals from the shared resource if they provided any intellectual input or additional effort.)
