Confocal microscope - Zeiss LSM 780 NLO
Cheney D - 1st floor
The Zeis LSM 780 NLO is a confocal microscope with high-sensitivity spectral light detection. It is set-up on inverted AxioObserver microscope dedicated to live cell imaging, thanks to a dark incubation chamber and modules controling CO2 and temperature. The pulsed multiphoton laser (coming in april 2012) will provide imaging into thick samples.

"biphoton" pulsed laser - Coherent Chameleon Vision S
- Applications -
- Conventional confocal imaging (multi-colors, 3D, colocalization)
- Spectral imaging, in live and post-acquisition mode
(autofluorescence, probes with close emission spectra, single pass multi-color imaging).
- Imaging of dynamic events, "F" methods (FRAP, FLIP, FRET), photo-activation.
- Time Lapse, compatible with multipoint reading, tiling Z-stack.
