Advanced Microscopy Imaging Microscopy a key tool for research scientists has revolutionalized the understanding of cells/tissues, their sub cellular compartments, and helps to visualize the localization of the proteins/genes of interest and relate them to their proposed function. This facility at CCMB is equipped with latest and state-of-the-art Microscopes like, TIRF, APOTOME, Advanced Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope (CLSM) Systems, Multiphoton Confocal Microscope System and a Live Cell Confocal System for different applications in biology. 

 Confocal Laser scanning microscopy - This technique enables visualization deep within both living and fixed cells and tissues and affords the ability to collect sharply defined optical sections from which three-dimensional renderings can be created

Multiphoton Confocal Microscope - has IR-laser that allows greater penetration with minimal photobleaching. Is used for localization of proteins and genes of interest, in relatively thicker specimens

Live Cell Laser Scan Confocal Microscopy System - maintains samples at temperatures ranging from ambient to 40C with CO2 supply and is used for scanning at high speed for observing fast and dynamic processes. 

APOTOME - works on structured illumination principle to get high quality images both in DIC
 and fluorescence. 

TIRF - Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Microscopy System - highly advanced and integrated modular system capable of observing specimens at the depth of 200nm with high resolution.

The facility also has Live cell-imaging system, Universal research microscope and Fluorescence Stereo Microscope with 3D system.
