The goal of the Basic Biomedical Sciences Imaging Core is to provide researchers with access to microscopy instrumentation. With a range of digital imaging microscopy systems, the Imaging Core offers various optical microscopes for slide and cellular biological imaging.
The microscopes in the Imaging Core may be used independently by researchers. For imaging inquiries, contact Scott.Pattison@usd.edu.
Access to the microscopes are on a first-come, first-served basis and must be reserved through the Booked electronic scheduling platform.
All USD and USD-affiliated researchers may use the facility at no charge. External rates may apply for outside entities. Data and image storage is the responsibility of the researcher.
