Devante Horne is a Junior Bioengineering student from Anderson, SC. His interests include nanotechnology, tissue engineering, immunology, and of course, microscopy!
Devante joined the Imaging Facility in January 2013 through the Clemson University Professional Internship/Co-Op (UPIC) Program. He is proficient with the Leica M80 stereoscope and the Combine ZP image processing software (used for creating extended depth of focus images).
Currently, Devante is working to learn how to use the CytoViva Hyperspectral Imaging System.
Brittany is a Senior majoring in Health Sciences. She has worked in the Clemson Light Imaging Facility as an undergraduate student assistant and as a Clemson University Professional Internship/Co-Op (UPIC) program intern.
Brittany has extensive experience with the Leica M80 Stereoscope and the Olympus LEXT OLS 3D Laser Measuring Microscope. Most recently, she attended an in-service training session to learn to operate the Guava flow cytometer. Brittany is a talented Photoshop user, and designs the CLIF newsletter header each month.
Krista is a sophomore majoring in Genetics and Biochemistry. Krista joined us in the Fall of 2013 as a student in the Clemson University Professional Internship/Co-Op (UPIC) program.
Krista has worked hard to learn to use the Leica M80 Stereoscope and can perform image editing in Photoshop. She has been developing and editing standard operating procedures for a number of instruments in the CLIF, and can operate many of these systems on her own.
