The Confocal Microscopy and Quantitative Imaging Core provides optical imaging services for Van Andel Research Institute (VARI) and collaborating institutions. Its goal is to serve the VARI community with state-of-the-art imaging resources to address a broad variety of research questions, as well as offering the expertise to train researchers to use these resources effectively.
VARI’s Core Technologies and Services manages service requests through CrossLab Solutions. Each Core maintains an CrossLab page that provides descriptions of the Core as well as options to schedule equipment and request services. Pricing also is available in CrossLab (See Schedule Equipment and/or Request Services). Current CrossLab users can login here.
VARI staff that need a login (or further CrossLab support) should contact Lori Moon and MSU staff that need a login should contact Erica Lange. External users that need an CrossLab account/login can go here for account creation. After logging in, external users should click “list all cores” under the Core Facilities section in the left menu and scroll down to “Cores at Van Andel Institute”.
