Instruments

The Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry Cell Imaging Centre is a multi-user facility at the University of Alberta. The facility provides resource access to users within the faculty and across the university. Currently, we offer training and access to 7 light microscopes and 2 electron microscopes.

The Facility operates on a fee-for-use basis, which allows partial cost recovery for operating expenses and service contracts for the instruments.  A major portion of Facility operating costs are provided through financial support from the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry and Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) awards to contributing investigators. User fees are used to cover the cost of supplies and partially cover service contracts and maintenance.

Our instruments and equipment include:

Light Microscopes, Electron microscopes and EM Preparative Equipment.
