The Imaging Facility is a multi-use core facility, consisting of Transmission Electron Microscopy, Confocal Microscopy and Histology. It operates on a for-fee basis and is available to faculty, staff and students at UK as well individuals from outside the university.
SERVICES AND SUPPORT
Technical support for preparation of specimens used in confocal and electron microscopy as well as histology is available from the staff of the Imaging Facility on a for-fee basis. Preparation of fixative and buffer solutions can be provided if the investigator wishes. Immuno-labeling using fluorescence (light level), ABC-peroxidase (light and ultra-structural levels) and colloidal gold (ultra-structural level) is also available. However, investigators are required to provide their own primary antibodies or detection antibodies that are not stocked by the facility. Investigators may choose the level of technical support based upon their individual needs. Support may range from training on the instrumentation, allowing independent use by the investigator, to complete processing of samples and final imaging by the facility staff.
