Microscopy & Image Analysis Workstations



We are currently operating according to policies described in our approved Stage 1 Recovery Plan.

A summary of these policies is posted up around the core, as well as HERE.



CLICK HERE to get answers to our most frequently asked COVID-19 operational status questions.



We have had an increasing number of requests for the retrieval of old sequencing data from our archive. While we are always happy to help whenever we can, a couple of issues have arisen surrounding this. CLICK HERE to review our new policy on data retention & retrieval.


If you are new to the core or microscopy and would like guidance with choosing which instrument would best suit your experiment, please email Adam Fries at afries2@uoregon.edu, drop by my office in Klamath Hall room 270D, or fill out a Microscopy Consultation Form.

The Core currently has 4 analysis workstations and include the following software:

(Usage Rates - Internal: $25/hr, External $50/hr)

  • Imaris 9.5 with Cell and Filaments Modules
  • Imaris 9.5 Converter and Stitcher
  • Prism8

Calendar Access and Training:

  • Instrument reservations are made though iLab and each user will need to register an iLab account if they do not have one. Once training on the instrument has been scheduled and completed, new users will be granted calendar access.


  • The current recharge rate for all microscopes and analysis stations is $10 / hour. Individualized training recharge for each of the instruments is $150 ($300 for external customers).


  • Contact Adam Fries afries2@uoregon.edu for more information regarding instruments, training, or analysis. Or visit the office in Klamath 270D.
