Imaging and Cell Metabolism

Overview of Services

Microscopy

The Microscopy core will provide use of two confocal microscopes, one transmission electron microscope, and one ultramicrotome. Training will be provided to new users. In some cases, core personnel can be hired to perform all aspects of an experiment; in other cases, users may use the equipment on their own.

 

Cell Metabolism Analysis

The Cell Metabolism Core allows users to measure mitochondrial and non-mitochondrial oxygen consumption and glycolysis in live cells, whole organisms and tissues on a 24 well format or on a 8 well format. There are two instruments available, the XF24 and the XFp Analyzers. The instruments are capable of analyzing up to 6 conditions at four replicates each. The analyzers is located in Manville Health Sciences 8E. The Cell Metabolism Core has been opened on February of 2017, and it is housed within the Department of Pharmacology.

 

This core was supported, in part, by the Cell Biology COBRE, a grant from the NIH, National Institute of General Medical Sciences (GM103554). The iLab license was provided by the NV INBRE Administrative Supplement, a grant from the NIH National Institute of General Medical Sciences (GM103440-14A1S1).
