WIS-Microscopes Database

BioImaging equipment at Weizmann is distributed between several core facilities and departmental facilities.

In general equipment at core facilities are available for all researchers at WIS, while departmental equipment are targeted for internal use within the department.

MicroscopeDB lists all core equipment and we encourage listing departmental and also lab equipment as we believe that such a database is valuable for:

-          Sharing experience around campus

-          Consulting regarding pros and cons of different systems

-          Getting help with microscope / software usage

-          Sharing microscope resources on campus

There is a special field in the database stating the type of owner: Core/Departmental/Lab. 

Summary information about Core equipment will be extracted for the WIS-BioImaging website
