Confocal Core Facility




Confocal Core Facility provides “open access” confocal imaging services with actual expenses pursuant to the guideline of Department of Research and Experiments, to all the researchers in Biomedical Research Institute (BRI). Equipment and image analysis software that our facility provides is as follows:

- Leica STED CW for super resolution confocal images with 67nm of maximum resolution 

- Leica TCS SP8 for conventional confocal images with 250nm of maximum resolution

- Leica Upright Confocal microscope STELLARIS 8

- X-CLARITY™ Tissue Clearing System II

- Huygens 3D image deconvolution software for 2D and 3D confocal and STED images

- LAS-X official image analysis software for co-localization, image intensity statistics and cell count analysis

Confocal Confocal operating service is only available during regular working hours from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. week days. We also provide an educational lecture program and hands-on training service for personal users who would like to use our facilities after office hours and especially, during weekend. To make a reservation for confocal imaging services, please contact our office (Ext. # 1738) or visit in person during office hour. For more information or consultation regarding advanced confocal imaging techniques: fluorescent recovery after photobleaching (FRAP), fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), 3D tile scan imaging, live cell imaging experiments or other complicated confocal experiments, users are requested to visit our office before designing your experiments or preparing confocal samples. Available lasers for excitation are 405, 458, 476, 488, 496, 514, 561, 594, 633 and detectable emission range spans from 420 to 800. For cancelation of confocal reservation, it is mandatory to call or visit our facility at least 24 hours before your scheduled experiment.
Our office is always open for your questions. For more information, please contact us.
