Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center
BioImaging Shared Resource


The goal of the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center Bioimaging Shared Resource is to advance the scientific research programs of the Cancer Center by providing SKCC investigators powerful, reliable, and readily accessible light microscopy.  The Bioimaging Shared Resource provides a FLIM-assisted STED (stimulated emission depletion) super-resolution system, galvo and resonnat laser point-scanning confocals, spinning disk confocal, TIRF (total internal refection fluorescence), and widefield fluorescence modalities.  The staff provides in-house training on all instruments.

  • We've once again updated our technology with the addition of a new, all LED tissue culture screening station, the Nikon Ts2R.
  • We will be slowly retiring the Nikon C2 confocal to make room for additional systems and functionalities.  Please contact us for more details.
