Laser Capture Microscopy
Laser capture microscopy is a new core available through the Department for micro-dissection of tissue sections. This state-of-the-art equipment can also be used to identify and isolate fluorescent-labeled cells in tissue sections. A free training session is provided to allow investigators to utilize the equipment for a nominal charge ($25.00/hour). Department technologists are also available to perform micro-dissection for investigators on a charge back basis for time and effort. Pathology consultation may also be arranged on an ad hoc basis. A cost estimate can be obtained by filling out a Laser Capture Microscopy Worksheet.
