Advanced Imaging Facility

The AIF is a shared core facility under the Division of Science and Technology at CSI that houses advanced imaging systems including confocal, live-cell, transmission electron, scanning electron, and atomic force microscopes as well as dedicated lab space for specimen processing and analysis suites to allow researchers to prepare, image, and analyze samples at a single site. This facility is open to research scientists from all CUNY campuses. Scientists belonging to other academic institutions and industrial scientists are also invited to utilize the facility.
