Research Resource Cores
  • Imaging Core: The Department of Biomedical Sciences Imaging Core facility, managed by Dr. Alex Vasilyev, is equipped with two confocal microscopes. The Leica SP5 inverted confocal microscope is outfitted with an environmentally controlled chamber, and it is ideally suited for cell culture imaging applications, including live imaging of fluorescent cell cultures. The Nikon C2 upright confocal microscope is equipped with a software-controlled motorized stage and a four-wavelength laser unit. It is well suited for a wide range of applications including live fluorescent imaging and immunofluorescence confocal microscopy.
  • Physiology Core: The Department of Biomedical Sciences Physiology Core facility, managed by Dr. Youhua Zhang, provides echocardiography, invasive hemodynamic measurement with a pressure-volume catheter, and in vivo cardiac electrophysiology testing (including arrhythmia inducibility test) in rats and mice. The Core is equipped with a GE Vivid-7 echocardiographic suit, SciSense pressure-volume acquisition system (including catheters, hardware and LabScribe software), and in vivo cardiac electrophysiology assessment (Millar Electrophysiology Catheter for rats and mice, 8-channel-programmable stimulator, Octal Bio Amp, PowerLab 8/35 and LabChart Pro data acquisition system).
