Microscopes

The Microscopy Suite of the Core University Research Resource Laboratory (CURRL), located on the main campus of New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, is an evolving core facility, administered by the Office of the Vice President for Research and equipped with modern transmission and scanning electron microscopes, a new spectral confocal microscope with UV-VIS optics and a digital imaging stereo-fluorescence microscope. These sophisticated tools are readily accessible as research and training resources for intramural and extramural researchers, educators and students. The research staff of the Laboratory provides support and guidance for a broad range of short-term microscopic imaging tasks and long-term integrated projects.
