The AOMF manages instruments at both Princess Margaret and Toronto General Hospitals, as well as STTARR. We are equipped for nearly any optical microscopy application, from macro to micro, including:
  • Widefield fluorescence for routine imaging of live and fixed cells and tissues
  • Confocal/Multiphoton for high resolution optical sectioning and 3D imaging
  • Spinning Disk Confocal 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 for carrying out spatially resolved spectroscopy in a confocal manner at high speed
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.
