The Life Science Fluorescence Imaging Facility

The Life Science Fluorescence Imaging Facility is a joint effort of the Colleges of Agriculture, Consumer and Family Science, Engineering, and Science and the School of Veterinary Medicine at Purdue University.

This facility is for researchers in the life sciences and is located in 337 and 326 Horticulture Building.

The objective of the facility is discovery. You have access to state of the art equipment, like the Zeiss LSM 710 confocal microscope, so that you can actually do the experiments that test your hypothesis. You may even get unexpected results that lead to more new and exciting experiments.

The facility is user-driven. That means that you get basic training about using the equipment, and then you get to do your experiments without some looking over your shoulder.
