Research Facility

Cellular & Molecular Digital Imaging Facility
Dalhousie University
Nova Scotia (NS)

One of Dalhousie Medical School’s first core facilities, the Cellular & Molecular Digital Imaging Facility was established in 1998 with the installation of the medical school’s first laser scanning confocal microscope. It provides state-of-the-art multi-user microscopy equipment, software, technical support and training. 

The Cellular & Molecular Digital Imaging Facility maintains and operates an array of top-quality, high-powered imaging devices:

  • Zeiss LSM 510 META (inverted) laser-scanning confocal microscope
  • Zeiss LSM 510 (upright) laser-scanning microscope
  • Zeiss LSM 710 (upright) laser-scanning microscope
  • Zeiss Cell Observer spinning-disk confocal microscope with FRAP & TIRF
  • Zeiss PALM MicroBeam laser micro-dissection system
  • Zeiss Axio Imager Z2—brightfield and fluorescent image capture
  • Zeiss Axiovert 200M— brightfield and fluorescent image capture
  • Zeiss Axioplan II MOT—brightfield and fluorescent image capture
  • Zeiss Axioplan II—brightfield and fluorescent image capture
  • Leica DM6000B—stereo investigator and Neurolucida workstation
  • Zeiss Lightsheet Z.1 - Lightsheet microscope
  • Imaris workstation
  • Epson Stylus Pro 9880 large-format printer

In addition to providing researchers with access to sophisticated equipment and the software to run it, staff members in the Cellular & Molecular Digital Imaging Facility provide researchers with technical support and training as required. The facility also provides high-quality poster-printing services.
