The NCI Fluorescence Imaging Facility provides support in 3D fluorescence microscopy techniques for laboratories in the Center for Cancer Research and NCI. Researchers from other NIH institutes are also welcome. The facility houses equipment for 2D or 3D imaging of fixed and living specimens. High resolution images can be obtained by confocal microscopy or deconvolution. The microscopes are highly automated, and data are recorded digitally. Special expertise is available for assistance with deconvolution microscopy, as well as live cell imaging. Facility personnel are also experienced in protein colocalization, in fluorescence photobleaching techniques, such as FRAP, in analysis of protein interactions by FRET and also provide expertise and software for quantitative analysis of images.
