Users of the Histo Pathology Core's Client Microscopy Facilities can take advantage of the below linked ruler files to aid in making bars of measure for figures.

Leica DM2000 Upright Compound Microscope with Jenoptik Gryphax Camera (set at 2700 x 1800 pixels)

Zeiss Axiovert 100 Inverted Microscope with Jenoptik Gryphax Camera (set at 2700 x 1800 pixels)

Each ruler file contains a millimeter scale, or a portion thereof, at higher magnification. The example graphic depicts the relative rulings.

Users needing to make bars of measure for images acquired on the Core's other imaging systems, or acquired on the Leica DM2000 or Zeiss Axiovert 100 before June of 2018, should contact the lab for assistance with additional rulers.
