The Microscopy Facility of the Red Sea Research Center was designed to provide students and researchers with state-of-the-art optical microscopy equipment. Two dedicated rooms accommodate up to 10 microscopes from world-leading brands such as Carl Zeiss and Leica. Marine microorganisms and anemones are the main targets of the users of this facility. Sample analyses can be performed using brightfield, darkfield, fluorescence, DIC and phase contrast microscopy. Imaging software is also available for users to stitch pictures and compose bigger images, set the timer for automatic snapshots, to perform automatic cell counts and to assemble 3D images of the organisms. The facility staff provide training, technical support, sample preparation and imaging assistance.
