Established in 1994, the CCAM Microscopy Facility provides the UConn Health research community as well as other academic and industrial institutes, access to its state of the art equipment for quantitative fluorescence imaging applications. The facility now comprises ~3500 sq. ft. of laboratory space and includes three laser scanning confocal microscopes, one of which is a combined nonlinear optical (aka 2-photon)/ laser scanning confocal/ correlation spectroscopy microscope, one spinning disk confocal microscope and a widefield fluorescence microscope equipped for total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) imaging. The equipment may be used by authorized users who have completed the required training for each piece of equipment they choose to use. Alternatively, CCAM staff are available for service work at an hourly rate. CCAM offers storage space to each lab with an active account.
