The Department of Pathology's Core Imaging Laboratory is located at the School of Public Health, 683 Hoes Lane, Room 024 on Rutgers' Busch campus. The facility provides electron microscopy services, techniques and expertise for the current needs of the department and the Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS) family, including the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Cancer Institue of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, Rutgers University, and private sector users.


We carry out a wide range of services from conventional electron microscopy to negative staining. The facility is organized to encourage the use of the equipment by individual users both within and outside the university. Individual and small-group instruction in the use of equipment and in electron microscopy techniques is provided to faculty, staff, post-doctoral fellows and residents. In addition, electron microscopy services are available for a set fee. Examples of some the services provided are: Routine sample preparation for transmission electron microscopy, including specimen preparation, specimen observation and image capturing, ultrathin sectioning and negative staining.
