Bioimaging Core Facility

The CEB’s Bioimaging Core Facility provides cutting-edge microscopic/macroscopic imaging and flow cytometry/cell sorting instrumentation to the university community to enable superior research and quality result outcomes.

Equipment Inventory

Our equipment inventory consists of a wide array of microscopes, multimode (fluorescence/bioluminescence) microtiter plate (1-1536 well) readers, a BD FACSAria fluorescence-activated cell sorter/flow cytometer, and two in vitro/in vivo IVIS fluorescence/bioluminescence imaging systems. We provide education, training, and assistance with data analysis to ensure that your research and development needs are optimally met.

Training Schedule

We provide training on all of our imaging equipment either on a one-to-one basis, or we can accommodate complete labs or departments. General training sessions are provided at the beginning of each spring, fall, and summer semester and are open to faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, technical personnel, and undergraduate and high school students participating in independent research projects. We also offer training at various times throughout each semester based on user needs. Other training sessions will be posted as needs dictate. Please contact us if you require training at any other time during the year.

Animal Use

All animal use within our facility must have approval by the UT Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC).


The CEB Bioimaging Core Facility is located in room 732 of the Science and Engineering Research Facility (SERF).
