Welcome to the Molecular Imaging Core

The Molecular Imaging Core provides researchers at the University of Rochester with access to state-of-the-art instruments capable of detecting and quantifying the levels and positions of radio- and fluorescently labeled molecules in a variety of formats including gels, blots, and microtiter plates.

Core Services

The facility provides users with access to two instruments designed to facilitate the analysis of samples containing radioactive- and fluorescent-labeled biomolecules. The virtue of the two systems is their sensitivity and digital storage, which allows easy quantitation and manipulation of images.


There is no formal user group. There are currently 41 Medical Center laboratories with permission to use this facility.
