Biological Imaging Core Facility

A confocal microscope image of a section of human retina, showing a specialized region called the fovea. Fluorescent probes have been used to identify cell nuclei (blue) and rod photoreceptors (green).

About our work

The National Eye Institute's Biological Imaging Core provides NEI scientists with a wide range of high resolution imaging and analysis applications including confocal microscopy, multi-photon imaging, Airyscan super-resolution, deconvolution, laser capture microdissection, in vivo and in vitro imaging. The primary objective of the Biological Imaging Core is to pair state-of-the-art instrumentation with novel imaging approaches to provide vision scientists new avenues for studying ocular disease processes.
