The Cell Imaging core at Sanford-Burnham’s Orlando campus houses state of the art imaging instruments and extensive digital image acquisition and process services, and provides guidance on experiment design, investigator training and use of the instruments, or full-service imaging. It also offers assistance in troubleshooting and optimizing experiments to ensure the highest data is acquired.

The Cell Imaging Core at Lake Nona broadly supports research programs by providing access to sophisticated microscopes for digital imaging, as well as training, assistance and guidance, helping scientists from any institution.

Equipment and Resources:

  • Nikon A1RSI Spectral Confocal Microscope: laser point scanner and high-speed resonant scanning mirrors, A1-DUV GAsP Detector and AOTF Control with 7 Laser Lines (402, 458, 476, 488, 514, 561 and 637nm) on a Ti-E fully motorized inverted microscope with Perfect Focus System (PFS). High-speed resonant scanning or high-resolution point scanning. It has a Nikon Qi1 CCD Camera for wide-field fluorescence, and capability for live cell imaging, stage and objective heating, and gas control. Runs on Nikon Elements.

  • Nikon Inverted Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Microscope: Brightfield, DIC and Widefield Fluorescence and (TIRF) fully motorized microscope with PFS (Perfect Focus System). Equipped for FRET and Ca2+ imaging, with a cooled monochrome EMCCD camera (QuantEM 16bit 512x512, Photometrics) and a cooled monochrome CCD camera (CoolSNAP HQ2 14bit 1392x1040, Photometrics). Lamdba DG-5 Xenon lamp, Mercury Intensilight, Ar-ion laser emitting at 488 and 514 nm and diode laser emitting at 561 nm. Runs on Nikon Elements Software.

  • A non-motorized routine Olympus inverted wide-field fluorescence and diascopic light microscope equipped with a SPECTRA X, a State of the Art Solid State Lighting Instrument that uses an arc lamp that provides a cool, stable, robust, spectrally pure light and allows the user to make his or her own choices about bandpass during use in the field is also available. This system has six independent sources, one for each color band. The microscope was also equipped with a QImaging Retiga 4000R digital camera, which provides higher sensitivity and resolution that makes it ideal for automated imaging applications.

  • A Nikon Eclipse LV100N Polarizing Microscope: It can be used for the quantitative assessment of myocardial collagen. Polarized light microscopy can also be used to study a wide range of physicochemical properties. Materials and tissues can be characterized and identified by optical properties such as refractive index and birefringence and other phenomena such as particle size, particle shape, color, twinning and the presence of inclusions.

  • A Zeiss PALM Laser capture microdissection System: Using this instrument user can collect tissue or cells for further analysis with extreme precision and without physical contact.

  • Two Nikon Biostations, which are enclosed environmental systems capable of 2-channel fluorescence or bright filed illumination.

  • An FEI Morgagni TEM equipped with SC1000 ORIUS™ CCD camera, which is the latest generation of large format retractable and fiber-optical coupled CCD cameras; it offers a high speed (>14 fps - frames per second) image viewing mode, the SC1000 can output high quality (dark and gain corrected) images via a digital video stream.

  • Two dedicated image analysis workstations are available with Nikon Elements, ImagePro, Volocity, ImageJ and HALO. HALO offers 14 image analysis algorithms from Indica labs allowing molecular assay, morphological feature detection and quantification of scientific images. The algorithms are integrated with Aperio Spectrum images and will also work on images acquired from other systems.
