Instrument Procurement Survey

Optical microscopy has long been an indispensable tool for interrogating samples that range from single-molecules to materials to whole organisms.  In an effort to further the imaging capabilities of University of Colorado and the surrounding science industry, BioFrontiers is evaluating the needs of the local scientific community.  Given the wide-variety of instrumentation and funding-sources available, we are seeking feedback from you, the end-user of the proposed equipment.

All information provided will remain confidential.  Forms with a red box adjacent to it are required for submission.

Several pieces of instrumentation are being considered. Please select what pieces of instrumentation you are interested in. A brief description of each instrument is provided.

Inconvenient location, cost is prohibitive, lack of appropriate equipment for your lab, etc...

Further information on proposed equipment:

  • Structured Illumination Microscope
  • Multiphoton Microscope
  • STORM Microscope
  • FCS/FCCS - Time-correlated single-photon counting method that enables correlations in single-molecule fluorescence 'bursts' to be analyzed.  Provides a rich information set that includes the absolute fluorescent molecule concentration, diffusion coefficients, fraction of molecules bound, and more.

If you have any other comments or questions, feel free to contact Joe Dragavon.
