The Waksman Confocal Microscope Core Facility provides training and consultation on the use of our confocal microscopes. The facility has two Leica TCS confocal microscopes, the SP2 and SP5 II, as well as a workstation. Our scanning confocal microscopes are capable of high resolution imaging of labeled cell components in three dimensional space by optical sectioning.  Imaging can be done with most standard fluorophores in live or fixed samples.

Data analysis

Department : Waksman Institute of Microbiology

Our state of the art Greenhouse facility features 4,200 square feet of growing space, divided into two rooms topped by a roof structure with a height of 14 feet at the truss to better enable the proper growth of corn plants.

Department : Cell and Cell Product Fermentation Facility

The fermentation facility's goal has been to provide affordable fermentation services to a highly diverse client base. Completely renovated in 2011 the fermentation facility, which meets BL2-LS containment requirements, is comprised of four contiguous operation units:
•Material Preparation Laboratory
•Fermentation In-Process
•Computer Control
•Product Recovery Room

Bio-reactor working capacities range from 10 to 800 liters. All systems are computer controlled with algorithm-based cascade-capable PID programming.
