St. Lawrence University

Andi McCoon's ('13) image of a magnified porcupine quill is part of an exhibit at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C.   Andi made the image using the electron microscope in St. Lawrence University’s Johnson Hall of Science.  The image is also part of the University’s digital microscopy collection.

This microscopy collection is a showcase of student and faculty work produced in the Anthropology, Biology, Geology and Physics Departments at St. Lawrence University using confocal, light and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Access to this research grade equipment allows students to learn specimen preparation techniques, laser physics, digital image acquisition and analysis.
