The HCMC provides comprehensive facilities for the preparation of samples for light and electron microscopy and for molecular and elemental diagnostics.
The HCMC specializes in providing very high resolution gigapixel images of histological thin sections, typically within 5-15 minutes, combined with light and electron correlative microscopy.
HCMC confocal microscopy includes conventional laser imaging, but also has superior refection imaging white light confocal microscopes, including a portable model.
HCMC is one of the few laboratories in the world to provide simultaneous elemental composition of liquids and solids across the full spectrum of the periodic table, in addition to transmission and reflection Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy.
The HCMC is first in the world to have fully digital real time 3D microscopy, in addition to a variety of other real time 3D transmitted and reflection microscopes.
The HCMC operates conventional high vacuum and variable pressure electron microscopes, with wide ranging gigapixel, 3D, and correlative imaging capability combined with density-dependent BSE imaging and EDAX elemental analysis.
BIOQUANT image analysis capability and Leica image analysis is available for histomorphometry of images from both light and electron microscopy sources.

The Histology and Correlative Microscopy Core (HCMC) is dedicated to the highest quality research on bone, the skeleton, and the dentition. Its Members aspire and take individual pride to provide specimen preparation and imaging science services and training in support of NYU Dentistry basic science and clinical research programs, and to external researchers and industry around the world. Creativity and innovation are encouraged for improving the effectiveness of HCMC pursuits, particularly for seeking unknowns (even those we don't know we don't know) that lurk in the microanatomical, histological, and chemical compositions of hard tissues.
