The Clemson Light Imaging Facility (CLIF) is a multi-user core facility located on the main campus of Clemson University. It houses an array of advanced light microscopes, cytometry equipment, a histology suite, and a fully functional molecular biology laboratory. Users have access to multiple confocal microscopes, a stereoscope, a laser microdissection system, and a polarized light microscope. Additionally, researchers can use an Olympus laser measuring microscope, a DSX Digital Microscope, and a BioRad S3E cell sorter. Our staff is available to offer advanced training, perform professional imaging, and/or provide consultations. We also participate in outreach activities for K-12 groups and the general public via the Clemson STEAM network.
