Multiphoton Intravital & Tissue Imaging (MITI) Research Core

As part of the larger Small Animal Imaging Core, the MITI Core is equipped with experienced research professionals and state-of-the-art intravital imaging equipment to acquire advanced descriptive and quantitative data from live animals and fixed samples requiring deep tissue illumination.

The MITI Core is equipped with an Olympus FVMPE-RS advanced multiphoton microscope and a Spectra-Physics InSight X3 dual-line, tunable multiphoton laser for ultrafast, multichannel imaging.

Learn more about multiphoton intravital and deep tissue microscopy, including how the MITI Research Core can expand your research, by viewing Dr. Jensen Smith's recent Tech Talk about Intravital Microscopy.
