HGINJ Imaging Core

Overview of Services

Welcome to the Human Genetics Institute of New Jersey (HGINJ) Imaging Facility at Rutgers University! We are located in the Life Science Building on Busch Campus. The Imaging Core was established in early 2007 and has been providing members of the institute and the Division of Life Sciences community with access to a broad range of imaging instruments to serve many microscopy applications: from routine brightfield/histological sample imaging to epifluoresence, laser scanning confocal, STED super-resolution, multispectral, live imaging and FLIM (fluorescence lifetime imaging). The facility also offers IMARIS image analysis software for use, 3D-reconstruction, and advanced segmentation analysis. We provide consultation on choosing appropriate equipment for particular imaging needs, as well as training users with the goal of independent use. Please check our instruments for details and contact Jessica Shivas (jshivas@dls.rutgers.edu) and Karen Schindler (ks804@hginj.rutgers.edu) for more information.
