The Clemson Light Imaging Facility (CLIF) is a multi-user core facility located on the main campus of Clemson University, and is directed by Dr. Terri Bruce. Dr. Bruce has an extensive background in engineering materials and biology. By drawing on this experience, she is able to assist in tailoring a project from sample preparation to image acquisition and analysis, in order to meet the specific needs of the client.
The available systems include a suite of equipment manufactured by Leica Microsystems, including a SP8X multiphoton spectral confocal microscope, a SPE spectral confocal microscope, a Laser Microdissection System, a Polarized Light Microscope, and a M125 stereoscope. Clients also have access to an Olympus LEXT OLS4000 3D laser measuring microscope, a CytoViva widefield hyperspectral imaging system, a Nikon confocal microscope equipped with a high-speed, high-sensitivity widefield camera, a Nikon AZ100 macroscope and a Nikon LV-UDM upright microscope, both of which offer fluorescence and brightfield imaging modes.
The Clemson Light Imaging Facility has successfully completed a number of large-scale imaging projects for a broad client base. For one non-profit group, we provided brightfield and darkfield image collages of more than 100 aquatic insect specimens and 25 mollusk specimens. We worked with a graduate student to image and quantify the stomatal density on more than 30 samples of turfgrass. Another graduate student asked us to perform imaging of more than 1000 slides of animal whiskers using fluorescence microscopy; our staff also provided image analysis of approximately 25% of the imaged samples.
Please contact us to find out how we can assist with your imaging project. No project is too large or too small.
