Microscopy Laboratory

NYU Langone’s Microscopy Laboratory (RRID: SCR_017934) is a shared resource offering comprehensive light and electron microscopy technologies. We partner with faculty, staff, and researchers at NYU Langone, as well as investigators from other institutions in the metropolitan area. Our scientists use powerful light microscopes and electron microscopes at resolutions ranging from centimeters to angstroms, providing clear and detailed images.

The Microscopy Laboratory provides high resolution microscopy services and technical expertise.

We assist at every stage of your experiment, offering research-design consultation and instrument training, as well as guidance in study execution, analysis, and presentation for publication.

To reserve time on an instrument, faculty, staff, and investigators must be registered in iLab. We have also provided iLab login instructions for NYU Langone, NYU, NYU College of Dentistry, and external users.

Requests and Reservations

Request services or reserve instruments using our iLab platform.

If you’re working with us for the first time, email or call us to discuss project design, sample preparation, and instrument selection. All users must follow lab policies, as well as those of NYU Langone.

New Instruments

We have three new instruments: an Olympus Fluoview multiphoton microscope, a Zeiss Gemini 300 field-emission scanning electron microscope with Gatan 3View®, and an FEI Talos L120C transmission electron microscope. Learn more about our light microscopy and electron microscopy technologies and instruments. You can also contact us for further information about our microscopes.

New Image Analysis Workstations and Software

We offer three high-end Dell Precision Tower 7910 workstations with 256 GB RAM that support quantitative large-volume data processing with Imaris, Amira, ImageJ, IMOD, and other software. Those powerful computers support both light and electron microscopy, in particular volumes from the Gatan 3View®.

Recent Publications

Investigators have published the results of research conducted at the Microscopy Laboratory in a variety of leading publications. See a comprehensive list.
