The AOMF manages microscopes across 4 UHN sites:
- Princess Margaret Cancer Research Tower (PMCRT) in the MaRS Center
Toronto General Hospital (TGH)
- Princess Margaret Cancer Centre (PM) at 610 University Ave
- Wright Cell Imaging Facility (WCIF) at the Krembil Research Institute, Toronto Western Hospital.

Together, we are equipped for nearly any optical microscopy application, including:
  • Widefield fluorescence for routine imaging of live and fixed cells and tissues
  • Confocal/Multiphoton for high resolution optical sectioning and 3D imaging
  • Super-resolution including both STED (70nm) and STORM (20nm)
  • Resonance-Scanning and Spinning-Disk Confocals for fast live-cell imaging
  • Phase Contrast/DIC/Darkfield including cell tracking and wound healing
  • Whole slide scanning/tiling for virtual microscopy and whole tissue quantification
  • Laser Capture Microdissection for extracting single cells or small tissue sections
  • In vivo bioluminescence and fluorescence for non-invasive small animal imaging
  • Intravital imaging including window chamber models
  • Raman
  • Automated FISH imaging
  • Image analysis stations including Fiji ImageJ (2D) and Imaris (3D)
  • Halo (by Indica Labs) for whole-slide quantitation including pattern recognition
Feel free to contact us for a consultation and tour of the facility: we will gladly help you figure out what instruments and procedures you should use for your imaging experiments. For a complete list of equipment, check out the equipment categories in the menu.
