Cell Imaging Center

Welcome to the Cell Imaging Center in the Department of Biology at Drexel University. The Cell Imaging Center is a core facility dedicated to advanced fluorescence microscopy applications. We are located in the Papadakis Integrated Sciences Building serving the imaging needs of Drexel University's research and teaching communities. Currently, the Cell Imaging Center consists of 4 light microscopy systems:

- Olympus Fluoview 1000 for confocal microscopy of fixed samples
- Zeiss LSM 700 for confocal microscopy of live and fixed samples
- Zeiss AxioObserver 2 for 2D and 3D deconvolution microscopy
- Olympus IX81 for 2D and 3D time-lapse microscopy with deconvolution capabilities

Mission Statement

Our mission at the Cell Imaging Center is to provide
a state-of-the-art facility for the light microscopy needs of
Drexel University’s researchers. We are dedicated to the acquisition
and promotion of advanced cell imaging technology for cutting edge experimentation
in a variety of organisms and model systems.

The Cell Imaging Center provides an excellent
training environment for Drexel University’s students with an interest
in quantitative advanced light microscopy. Our mission is to train tomorrow’s
world-leading cell biologists while helping our researchers
excel in image acquisition and processing.
