ALERT

In observance of US Thanksgiving holiday, Agilent Cross Lab iLab Operations Software will be closed during US hours on Thursday November 23rd and Friday November 24th, 2017. EU and APAC support coverage will remain open during this time. We will resume US support hours on Monday November 27th, 2017. For urgent matters, please add "URGENT" to the ticket subject and these requests will be prioritized first.

Cell Sciences Imaging Facility: Shriram Center

 

Overview of Services

 
 

Welcome to the Cell Sciences Imaging Facility at the Shriram Center

 

 

The Cell Sciences Imaging Facility (CSIF) is a University service center that provides high resolution, state-of-the-art technologies for imaging and analyzing the molecular and structural organization of cells, tissue and bioengineered materials.  The CSIF operates two sites at Stanford University: The SOE Shriram Center CSIF and the SOM Beckman Center CSIF.  Both facility sites are open to all members of the Stanford community as well as to external academic and industry researchers (with approval).  You are on the Shriram Center CSIF iLabs Solutions site.

 

 

 

The Shriram Center CSIF provides access to and training on advanced fluorescence and transmitted light microscopy including: laser scanning spectral confocal with AiryScan, multi-photon imaging (Zeiss LSM780, AiryScan, DeepSee), spinning disk confocal microscope with TIRF and photo-activation capabilities (Nikon SDC), FLIM and widefield (epi-fluorescence, polarized light and darkfield, Zeiss AxioImager) microscopes.  Detailed information on these microscopes can be found in the Schedule Equipment tab above.  Quick links to the microscopes scheduling calenders are below.

 

 

 

The Beckman Center CSIF houses both advanced fluorescence microscopy and electron microscopy instrumentation. Advanced microscope technologies include super resolution (SIM, gSTED, PALM/STORM), laser scanning confocal, multi-photon, FLIM, TIRF and widefield deconvolution as well as scanning and transmission electron microscopy. The Beckman Center CSIF iLabs site is here.     

 

 

 

Both facilities offer advanced software for 3D volume rendering and image analysis (Bitplane Imaris, PerkinElmer Volocity, SVI Huygens Deconvolution, ImageJ FIJI). Training, as well as assistance with experimental design, is available on all key technologies.

 

 

 

The CSIF is a member of and support by:

The SOM Beckman Center, Stanford Cancer Institute, BioX and the SOE

Publication Acknowledgement 

As with all Stanford Service Centers, credit must be given to Cell Sciences Imaging Facility for data that results in a publication. If the work done at Cell Sciences Imaging Facility produces data resulting in a figure in a publication, you are required to acknowledge Cell Sciences Imaging Facility in the publication. Further, if Cell Sciences Imaging Facility staff members provided significant experimental design, data interpretation, or other intellectual contribution (as evaluated by the PI), then it is expected that these individuals will be coauthors on the publication.

 

Additionally almost all of the CSIF's microscopes were obtained via NIH instrumentation grants and therefore require proper acknowmedgement. Please see the required NIH citation information included on the microscope's description page or contact the CSIF director.
