The Tufts University / Tufts-New England Medical Center Imaging Facility (TNIF)
/ Tufts-NEMC Imaging Facility (TNIF), also known as the Neuroscience Imaging
Facility, provides equipment and expertise for conventional fluorescence
microscopy, confocal and multiphoton microscopy (including FRAP and FRET
analyses), and laser capture microdissection. The TNIF is maintained cooperatively
through support from the Center for Neuroscience Research (CNR), the Tufts
Center for Vision Research (TCVR), and the Center for Gastroenterology
Research on Absorptive and Secretory Processes (GRASP).
(2) The Arcturus PixCell IIe instrument permits laser capture microdissection. This device allows users to isolate single cells for expression analysis.
(3) The Zeiss Axiovert inverted compound microscope (located in the Jaharis Building and for the use GRASP members only) is run by technician Kathleen Riley ((617) 636-2992).
The TNIF manager, Russell McConnell, can be contacted at Russell.McConnell@tufts.edu or by phone at (617) 636-3795.
