UCI Optical Biology Core Facility

The Optical Biology Core (OBC) operates under the theme that technology enables discovery. Consequently, the goal of the OBC is to provide the best conventional microscopy platforms available and to develop and introduce novel optical methods that allow new discoveries to be made. OBC comprises three facilities on the UC Irvine campus: i) a self-use OBC facility equipped with fluorescence microscopes and image analysis software, ii) the Laser Microbeam and Medical Program (LAMMP), a collaborative facility dedicated to the use of lasers and other optics in Biology and Medicine, and iii) a flow cytometry facility in Hewitt Hall equipped with three multiparameter flowcytometers.
