Image Analysis

  • Auto-location of non-straight dividing paths between touching cells and nuclei
  • Deconvolution
  • Image Registration
  • Enumerating individual FISH signals in cells within intact tissue
  • Measurement of the spatial organization of cells within tissue
  • Quantification of structural and molecular properties
  • Quantifying average telomere length in populations of interphase nuclei
  • Quantitative co-localization for measuring protein-protein interactions
  • Segmentation of cells and subcellular components from specimen images
  • Tiling of small images together into a single large-area image
  • Link to capabilities of image analysis software

Light Microscopy (LM)

  • Fluorescent, inverted, and stereo LM
  • Semi-thin-sectioned macro analysis of tissues from resin-embedded block
