Nikon A1R HD 25 Resonance Scanner Upgrade


April 30, 2019

We have recently upgraded the scanner on our Nikon A1R confocal in Shelby Room 130A to a High-Definition Resonance Scanner (AIR HD 125). This will allow us to do high-speed time-lapse imaging at 1024x1024 pixels as opposed to the old scanner with 512x512 resolution. You can find more information about the benefits of this instrument in the link below.

Please feel free to email Shawn Williams (tzaron@uab.edu) if you have any questions or would like to setup a time to see a demonstration.

Tour of the TEM Lab with Melissa Harris’s BY327 Histology Course


March 20, 2019

As part of the Histology Course (BY327/527) offered by the Department of Biology at UAB we visit the UAB High Resolution Imaging Facility. Our objective for this field trip is for students to gain a better appreciation of the applied science of transmission electron microscopy. Specialists at the facility provide an overview of aspects of tissue preparation, microscopy and imaging that are unique to electron microscopy. Students have the opportunity to see numerous examples of tissues studied by UAB researchers using electron microscopy and can literally see the value of this tool in making discoveries at the intracellular level.
