Biological imaging has become an indispensable tool in modern Medical and Biological research. The Biological Imaging Unit (BIU) is the institute's core facility for Microscopy and Imaging research and provides tools and expert guidance to scientists using modern microscopy methods and digital image processing and analysis.

We currently provide a number of imaging systems used in basic research.  Two confocal microscopes equipped for live cell and whole-embryo experiments, Quantitative Ion imaging (Ca++ or pH imaging), Deconvolution microscopy, FRET, FRAP, several camera-equipped wide field microscopes and a 10,000dpi microscope slide scanner.

Finally, we provide computing infrastructure for data storage, image analysis and 3D image visualization.  Please see our services and resources pages for more detailed info.
