Microscopy & Image Analysis Laboratory

Deltavision live cell imaging

Established in 1978, the Microscopy and Image Analysis Laboratory (MIL) is a centralized operation including more than 3,000 square feet housing major equipment, used on a shared basis by investigators focusing mainly on studies of cell and tissue morphology and ultrastructure. It offers state-of-the-art equipment for microscopic imaging, including fluorescence microscopy, as well as scanning and transmission electron microscopy.

The MIL is a fee-for-service-based operation open to researchers from all departments within the University of Michigan, other institutions, and the industrial research community. In 2013, MIL joined the Biomedical Research Core Facilities, part of the Office of Research in the University of Michigan Medical School.
