ALERT

iLab Operations Software Support will be staffed at reduced levels during the week Feb. 25 - Mar 1. iLab Support will prioritize critical issues (i.e. issues that prevent key workflows from completing). Regular support tickets will be monitored periodically. To escalate an issue, please add "Urgent" to the ticket / email subject or if dialling the iLab support phone press "1" when prompted (regional specific numbers can be found here). You can also refer to the iLab Help Site and iLab Status Page for site information.

Neuroanatomy Electron Microscopy Core

Overview of Services

The BMRI is now home to the Neuroanatomy Electron Microscopy (EM) Core. "The Electron Microscopy & Histology Core" provides similar services as the "Neuroanatomy EM Core".  The difference is that the Neuroanatomy EM Core focuses on brain and provides training to people (especially students and post-docs) in laboratory procedures. For more information about the entire list of core facilities offered at WCMC, please click here: http://corefacilities.weill.cornell.edu/

 

Summary

 

The goal of the Core is to provide training and services in the processing of brain tissue for light and electron microscopic immunocytochemistry.  Key aspects of the core include:  1) one-on-one training classes; 2) assistance with brain fixation and histology; 3) assistance with quantitative light microscopic immunocytochemistry on brain tissue; 4) assistance with quantitative single and dual labeling electron microscopic immunocytochemistry; 5) assistance with collection, analysis and interpretation of these preparations; and 6) assistance with preparing collected data for publication and meeting presentations. 

 

Mission of the core


This Core primarily oversees experiments on brain tissue that utilize pre-embedding light and electron microscopic immunocytochemical methods.
