We do a lot of microscopy and love a good time-lapse.

Crithidia fasciculata cells adhered to a Mattek dish and imaged by confocal microscopy for approximately 24 h.

Crithidia fasciculata cell modified to express a mitochondrial green fluorescent protein that has been fixed and stained with DAPI. Cell imaged by confocal microscopy and 3D representation and skeletonization was performed using Imaris software.

Another rosette of live adherent C. fasciculata cells expressing mitoGFP. Towards the end of the video the cell on the right divides.
