We are now using iLab to schedule services!
Schedule Services


The MRC Histology and Morphometry Core has recently enhanced its protocols for the sectioning, imaging and analysis of skeletal muscle morphology. Please click here for more information.
Contact Gretchen Meyer, our Muscle Specialist (; 314-286-1425) to schedule a consultation.

The new confocal microscope system is now up and running! The inverted microscope setup allows imaging of tissue culture plates as well as slides. We do not have CO2/heat for long term imaging of live cells, but you can look at live cells. You can also scan whole slides with fluorescence or brightfield. As with all Histology Core equipment, training is required to gain access to the calendar for scheduling in iLab. The hourly charge is $15, $10 for core members. Contact Stephanie Simpson ( to sign up for training.
