The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Olympus America have opened a new facility devoted to life science imaging.

The new University of North Carolina-Olympus Research Imaging Center provides researchers with microscopes and camera equipment, software and consultation. The center is designed to stimulate collaboration among top life science research faculty members and will be available to guest researchers as well.

The new imaging center, which comprises nearly 2,000-square-feet of space, has been endowed by Olympus America in Center Valley, Pa., which is providing imaging systems featuring research microscopes, confocal instruments, digital imaging equipment, intravital imaging tools, incubation microscopes, software and substantial ongoing staffing and technical support, said the university.
