Other Facilities

Clemson Light Imaging Facility (CLIF) is a multi-user core facility located on the main campus of Clemson University.  Directed by Dr. Terri Bruce, the imaging facility houses a number of advanced light microscopes, including a Leica SP8X Multiphoton spectral confocal  microscope, and a suite of Nikon microscopes. Additionally, the CLIF  features cell sorting equipment, a multi-user specimen preparation laboratory, and a dedicated classroom, which seats 20 people. The specimen preparation area houses all the equipment necessary for sample preparation,  including a cell culture hood, incubators, a chemical fume hood, and specimen rotators.  Users also have access to common equipment, including automatic dishwashers, autoclaves, and cold rooms.

Electron Microscopy Facility located  at AMRL has several state-of-art high resolution transmission electron microscopes (TEM), scanning electron microscopes (SEM) and a combined Focused Ion Beam (FIB)/SEM microscope. The goal is to provide best microscopy and analytical services to our faculty and industrial collaborators. We frequently utilize Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS), Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD), Wavelength dispersive spectroscopy (WDS), sample manipulation and surface modification capabilities installed on our electron microscopes. The multi-user facility attracts clients from aerospace, automotive, pharmaceutical, textile, electronics, environmental and medical industries. The affordable cost, wide range of capabilities and minimum wait time make the facility very attractive to area researchers.
