The Microscope Imaging Network (MIN) is a University Core facility funded in part through a core infrastructure grant from the Office of the Vice President for Research. The facility director is Jeff Field (jeff.field@colostate.edu), but each instrument has its own supervisor and training mechanism so be sure to visit the individual web sites for each instrument listed below for additional contact information. The Network presently includes the JEOL 1400 and JEOL 2000 Transmission Electron Microscopes housed in room W11 A/Z, a Zeiss LSM510 meta laser scanning confocal microscope in B318 of the Microbiology Building, a Zeiss LSM800 laser scanning confocal microscope housed in room W5 A/Z, an Olympus inverted IX81 FV1000 confocal laser scanning microscope housed in the Research Innovation Center, Foothills Campus, an upright Zeiss Axioplan 2 fluorescence imaging microscope housed in room 216W A/Z, an Olympus inverted IX81 spinning disk confocal microscope housed in room 224 MRB, a Nikon Eclipse Ti Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence (TIRF) microscope with N-STORM super resolution imaging capability, in room 224 MRB, and two Nikon inverted epifluorescence microscopes in room 224 MRB. Each of these systems is described in more detail under Instrument Capabilities.

Although NOT part of the Microscope Imaging Network, a JEOL JSM-6500F field emission scanning electron microscope with the in-lens thermal field emission electron gun, a JEOL JEM-2100 F Transmission Electron Microscope, and a Nanoscience 2 Atomic Force Microscope are available through the Central Instrument Facility within the Department of Chemistry (http://cif.colostate.edu).
