This core facility enables neuroscientists to visualize the structure of individual neurons and their activity in the living organism and has potential applications in many other research areas (such as microbiology, molecular biology, ophthalmology, etc.) for the study of 3D structure and process dynamics.
The Department of Biochemistry houses a state-of-the-art cryo transmission electron microscope (JEOL JEM-2100) equipped with cryo stage and digital imaging capabilities for observation of specimen at room and liquid nitrogen temperatures.
The x-ray diffraction facility, located in 4247 Weiskotten Hall, can be used for crystal screening or diffraction data collection; for macromolecular or small-molecule crystallography.
The SUNY Upstate Medical University Research Flow Core is available to all researchers at SUNY and surrounding institutions. We offer four flow cytometers and training for all researchers in the fundamentals of flow cytometry. A full-time flow core operator is available for assistance and guidance during normal business hours. The flow core operator is responsible the maintenance and calibration of the instruments.
The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology runs a Virtek/BioRad Robotic colony arrayer for whole-genome genetic and drug-sensitivity screening against the entire set of Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene deletion strains.
