PNNL's EMSL purchases $1M Microscope with its stimulus funds

PNNL's Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) recently purchased a multi-photon confocal microscope using $1 million of it's $60 million of federal economic-stimulus money awarded to the lab. It is just one of the instruments, which include microscopy and mass spectrometry capabilities, slated for purchase with the stimulus money. In total, 31 new instruments, including upgrades are being purchased with the funds - opening greater opportunities for users of the facilities.

SNNI researchers, as EMSL users have been using the lab's capabilities to track individual nanoparticles in living cells. Drs. Galya Orr and Robert Tanguay are identifying the cellular interactions and fate of well-defined nanoparticles in cultured cells and zebrafish.
