Photo of Nikon A1R HD25 Confocal Microscope
Confocal microscopy enables acquisition of 2D or 3D fluorescence images as well as time-lapse images by collecting emission light only from the focus of a laser beam. Excitation light generates fluorescence throughout the specimen and out-of-focus light is eliminated by a pinhole.
C1 Nikon Confocal Microscope Photo
Advantages: Confocal microscopy enables acquisition of 2D or 3D fluorescence images as well as time-lapse images by collecting emission light only from the focus of a laser beam.
Leica SP8 Confocal Microscope
Advantages: Confocal microscopy enables acquisition of 2D or 3D fluorescence images as well as time-lapse images by collecting emission light only from the focus of a laser beam.
Laser Capture Microscope Photo
Advantages: Setup is available for extracting cells or tissue regions. Sample preparation consists of fixed or frozen tissue sections placed on specialized microscope slides.
Thorlabs Two-Photon Microscope Photo
Advantages: Multiphoton microscopy (also called non-linear laser scanning microscopy) utilizes simultaneous absorption of two or more photons for excitation of a fluorescent label.
Leica CM1800 Cryostat Photo
Advantages: The cryostat is good for sectioning cryoprotected frozen in O.C.T. compound tissue.
Hybridization Oven Model Photo
Advantages: This oven is used for clearing large tissue samples. It allows extended gentle rocking of a sample at 37 0C. The system has three shelves.
Pipette Puller P-2000 Photo
Advantages: This laser-based pipette puller is good for multistep programmable pipette pulling from both soft and hard glass. These pipettes can be used for electrophysiology and viral injections.
Leica Vibratome VT1200 Photo
Advantages: This vibratome is good for cutting agarose-embedded tissue slices from ~50 μm to ~400 μm thickness. Fixed and living tissue can be cut in the designated chambers. The vibratome uses disposable razor blades.
