Eight photographs taken by St. Lawrence students with the University's
Leica confocal scanning microscope are on the Leica company's Web site.
Microscopy Technician Jill Pflugheber '86 encouraged students working with
the instrument to submit images to the Leica Web site for its "Nothing Remains
Invisible!" photo contest. While none of the students won (there is only
one winner), all of the photos submitted are in an image gallery on the site.
Students, or graduates, with images in the gallery are Karli Revoir '08,
Tara Lowell '07 (three photos), Allison Avrich '07, Robert Bracho '08 (two
photos) and Mukhaye Muchimuti '08.
Confocal microscopy allows a fluorescence-labeled specimen to be optically
sectioned at magnifications up to 1000x. The University's confocal scanning
microscope is located in the Johnson
Hall of Science.
