“Faith is a fine invention
When Gentlemen can see—
But Microscopes are prudent
In an Emergency”
~ Emily Dickinson
The Lakkaraju lab uses the Andor Revolution XD microscopy system (with high speed spinning-disk confocal, TIRF, and Mosaic capabilities) to study intracellular organelle trafficking (endosomes, lysosomes and autophagosomes) and follow endo- and exocytic events at the cell membrane in real time.
This is a shared instrumentation facility supported by the Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences, the School of Medicine and Public Health and by grants from the Research to Prevent Blindness Foundation and Reeves Foundation for Macular Degeneration Research.
If you are interested in using this powerful technology for live imaging of cells and tissues, please visit the Andor Revolution XD core page to get more information on our state-of-the-art system! Also visit the gallery to see movies, images and examples of 3-D and 4-D reconstruction of complex data sets.
