COVID-19 Phase 2 Re-opening

Access: The Bio-Imaging Center is currently open for all internal Phase 2 researchers, and all external users if samples can be shipped or dropped off.  Please contact Jeff Caplan ( for access.  UD’s return to research guidelines for access during different Phases can be found here.

Location and availability of instruments: The main Bio-Imaging Center will be split between the Delaware Biotechnology Institute (DBI) and the AP Biopharma (APB) building on STAR campus. We were in the midst of a move when the University closed and that move has resumed with a deliberate intention to split the main Bio-Imaging Center between two spaces. We believe that this split of the Bio-Imaging Center will assist with maintaining social distancing and low research personnel density.  If you are in Phase 0-2, the majority of the Bio-Imaging is now ready for use.

Scheduling: Scheduling time on microscopes will continue in iLab.

Building access: The DBI and AP Biopharma Bio-Imaging Centers are in buildings managed by DBI.  Please see DBI’s COVID-19 response page for guidelines, health-checks, and contact info for building level related questions.

Bio-Imaging Orientation Before Use: We will have a quick zoom meeting with all groups in Phase 1 to review your imaging needs, research timelines, and of course, safety. You are welcome to review the Bio-Imaging Center Orientation/training slides prior to our meeting.
