Photomicroscopy is an essential tool for research. Our laboratory offers high end digital photomicroscopy for both bright field and epifluorescence imaging.

Bright Field Imaging. For bright field imaging, a dedicated four-headed microscope is equipped with a 12 megapixel digital camera. The images are acquired for live viewing as well as archiving on a dedicated computer.

Florescent Imagining. For florescent imaging, a monochrome high-end digital camera is attached to an upright florescent microscope, with several objectives and filters. This system is a part of confocal microscope system.

These pieces of equipment are available to breast center members after appropriate training and approved access. A detailed description of the bright field microscopy and digital imaging is available for reference and training (digital imaging).
