Research

For all of the imaging that goes on in the lab, we have 9 microscopes within the walls of the Sluder Lab. We also have access to a common-use facility (that we manage) and we are planning to expand our capabilities in the near future. For now, we have our main lab scopes set up in two "divisions."

The Low-Tech Division

lowtech1   lowtech2

So named for the cardboard boxes and duct-tape used to create environmental enclosures to maintain 37*C at the microscope stage.


The High-Tech Division

hightech1   hightech2

The difference here is that we use a Plexi-glas enclosure instead of cardboard. The concept is still the same. The microscopes are also considerably more modern.
