Multi Photon

Multi-photon microscopy’s main advantage over imaging techniques such as confocal imaging lies in its ability to penetrate deeper into tissue while efficiently collecting light. Due to the use of longer excitation wavelengths, phototoxicity is reduced compared to conventional forms of microscopy lending itself well to imaging of live specimens


The Vanderbilt Medical Center CISR facility houses one multi-photon microscope for use in medical research studies by VUMC faculty, staff, and students. Please remember, access to all CISR equipment is limited to registered users only. Please Click Here for more information on the registration process.
