The Epithelial Biology Center Imaging Resource is a multi-user core facility at Vanderbilt University that provides specialized microscopy assistance such as automated slide scanning and analysis, colony counting, long-term live imaging and deconvolution. The core is capable of high-resolution automated and semi-automated imaging of a wide range of cell culture and tissue samples. This facility aids multiple NIH-funded investigators in their research goals by performing the imaging and quantification of whole pathological samples and tissue microarrays. Whether they are processed for histological, immunohistochemical, or immunofluorescent studies, expert assistance is offered in planning experiments and processing data in a consistent, objective, and timely manner. The automated imaging and analysis performed by this core saves researchers and staff weeks of tedious work. An additional service offered by the EBC Imaging Resource is the creation of digital archives of critical and irreplaceable tissue samples, a benefit only feasible due to the automated high-resolution imaging of whole 25 mm x 75 mm microscope slides.
