Confocal Microscopy


Confocal microscopy enables the visualization and imaging of fixed as well as living cells and tissues that contain fluorescent probes (antibodies, green fluorescent proteins, dyes, substrates). This technique allows sharply defined optical sections to be collected, from which three dimensional rendering and movies can be created.

The confocal facility of the CCMI is a shared resource that offers confocal and two-photon microscopy imaging services to Yale investigators. It provides access and training to both confocal and two photon microscopes, related equipment and image workstations.
