The Cellular Imaging shared resource at Fred Hutch provides advanced light microscopy services for biomedical and translational research. Our expert staff provides a complete workflow, including training for independent, 24/7 work in the core; assistance and technical support in microscopy techniques and their application; and tailored quantitative image analysis. We also offer training and support for imaging and analyzing gels and blots. We work with Fred Hutch users as well as external users from academia and industry.
Fred Hutch and Leica Microsystems have combined efforts to establish a Leica Center of Excellence in the Cellular Imaging core in support of a mission to drive new discoveries and insights from scientific research performed using the imaging systems.
We offer a range of state-of-the-art equipment, knowledge, and expertise in light microscopy. Our instruments include systems for incubator microscopy, automated image-based screening, confocal microscopy, 3D light-sheet microscopy, and super-resolution microscopy.
