User Resources

The Keith R. Porter Imaging Facility of the College of Natural and Mathematical Sciences provides core instrumentation for biological and materials science research. Equipment and services are available to all faculty and staff at UMBC, as well as the surrounding academic and industrial communities. Instruments are located in the Biological Sciences, Physics and Interdisciplinary Life Sciences buildings. We support all aspects of imaging, including protocol development, sample preparation, equipment training and image processing.

New users who would like to be trained on instruments, please visit the How To Get Trained tab. Please note that we are currently not offering in-person training, but will be slowly rolling out limited virtual training for certain instruments.

New users who wish to submit samples, please visit our Full Service Imaging page for more information.
