The Confocal Imaging Core at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center offers many different services to aid researchers in acquiring and analyzing their data. From experimental consultation to final analysis, we are here every step of the way. See below for more information.
Imaging is our primary mission, and at the heart of what we do. We are here to aid you in obtaining the highest quality images for research, analysis, and publication. We have a variety of different systems available to suit your imaging needs. For more information on available systems, click here. We also have a great variety of techniques available to help you gain the data you desire.
We have a full suite of computers dedicated to image analysis. Currently, we have eight image analysis workstations: all are equipped with NIS-Elements, and three are equipped with Bitplane Imaris.
You may also wish to download file viewing/analysis software so you may work with the images in their native format or analyze them at your workstation of choice. Follow the links below to download.
All users need to be properly trained on each individual system. Training sessions are done either one-on-one, or in a small group of 2-3 users using your samples. No training is required for the analysis workstations, but we do offer training for users who request it. Fill out the training request form to schedule training. Microscope schedules are available at the CCHMC Equipment Booking Site.
If you have any questions about imaging, experimental set up, or would simply like someone to help you through your first few times imaging, we offer consultation at no cost to the user. Feel free to contact us for more information.
