The BioFrontiers Advanced Light Microscopy Core (BFALMC) is an open access user facility that serves the entire CU Boulder and local scientific community. BFALMC houses six different imaging systems that allow researchers to observe both microscopic and macroscopic objects, including 3D printed structures, tissues, organoids, cells and single particles. Beyond technology and data analysis, we focus on user education and assistance, guiding researchers along the entire investigation pipeline from concept to experimental design to data acquisition and analysis. We look forward to helping you with your research needs.
