The Samuel Roberts Noble Microscopy Laboratory, the core imaging facility of the University of Oklahoma houses the most sophisticated collection of electron and confocal microscopes in the State, with a combined capitalized value of nearly $4.5 million. Use of the facility is primarily for university instruction and research at all levels of sophistication, but clients from other universities, foundations and industry are welcome to use this equipment, as well, and such work may be done on an invoice or contract basis. The facility is run as a principally a user facility, encouraging clients to participate in preparing and observing their materials. Use of the major instruments requires monetary recharge that partially reimburses our maintenance and operations costs. Usage may be arranged with the staff or Director.

Multi-Photon Confocal Multiphoton FLIM Microscope
The new LEICA SP8 multi-photon laser scanning confocal microscope is in final testing and a confocal research scientist, Dr. Ben Smith, has been hired to establish a fluorescence imaging core facility. This state-of-the-art confocal scanning microscope will allow non-destructive imaging of fluorescent molecular probes in living tissues, permitting 3- and 4-D sampling over long duration to capture developmental processes as they happen. Training will start soon.
New High Resolution SEM
The Zeiss NEON FEG-SEM dual beam high resolution SEM is now fully operational in GLCH rm 18. This microscope is equipped with EBSD, energy-dispersive x-ray spectroscopy and secondary ion beam (FIB). The microscope, with a value of >$1.2M, is able to image interrelationships of molecules and conduct nano-scale microchemistry, as well as hi-res e-beam lithography. This was funded by an NSF Physical Sciences-MRI grant awarded in 2010 ....more
