Imaging at RARAF Offline From Irradiation End Stations
Our off-line microscope and imagine capabilities not attached
to an irradiation endstation are many and varied. We highlight
a couple here.
RARAF has several inverted and upright microscopes
that have fluorescent imaging capabilities compatible with those
available on the microbeam end stations. Fluorescent imaging also
includes the ability to perform several analysis techniques highlighted
by mFISH (multicolor fluorescent in sito hybridization) and mBAND
(multicolor chromosome banding).
Bright Field Techniques
the microscopes also have the capabilities to perform bright field
microscopy techniques, including but not limited to: simple bright
field transmission illumination, Hoffman modulation, Nomarski phase
contrast, and oblique illumination.
RARAF staff are constantly developing and enhancing our imaging capabilites.
We encourage anyone considering an experiment at RARAF to contact us
to begin a dialogue for what techniques you would be interested in using
or having RARAF develop for use.
