St. Lawrence News


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.
