Whether or not you are within the UT system, from other academic institutions or working in non-/for-profit entities, the Quantitative Light Microscopy Core (aka QLMC) aims to provide A-to-Z solutions for your microscopy projects. We advise on sample preparation and imaging modality. Then, using your samples, you'll receive personalized training on one of our state-of-the-art microscopes. Finally, we can help with customized image quantification, automation of image analysis, and more. Working with us is easy:

  1. Set up your QLMC account on PPMS
    Please refer to our PPMS Quick Start (PDF) for "How to"
