Equipment

Zeiss Z.1 Light Sheet Microscopy

Light sheet is a technology proven to capture high resolution, three-dimensional images while being very gentle on living samples.

Zeiss 980 Microscopy System

The Zeiss 980 NLO system consists of an inverted Axio Observer microscope, laser scanning confocal, 32 channels spectral imaging, one 8Y-airyscan detector and two channels non-descan (NDD) epi-fluorescence detectors, motorized piezo stage for automated scanning, definite focus for focus compensation in time-lapse imaging and an IR Insight 3X, ultrafast Ti:Sapphire laser for multiphoton excitation.

 

Zeiss 780 Confocal/spectral/multiphoton Imaging Microscopy System

The Zeiss 780 NLO system consists of an inverted Axio Observer microscope, laser scanning confocal, 32 channels spectral imaging, two channels NDD transmission detectors and  two channels non-descan (NDD) epi-fluorescence detectors, motorized stage for automated scanning, and  IR Chameleon Vision-II, ultrafast Ti:Sapphire laser for multiphoton excitation.

Leica SP5 X Confocal/Spectral Imaging Microscopy System with White Light Laser

The white light laser-based SP5X system is a significant advance in confocal microscopy.

 

Motorized wide-field epi-fluorescence microcopy system

Olympus (IX-70) Infinity corrected inverted microscope with four output ports equipped with multiple objective lenses.

 

TIRF - Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Microscopy

This is a custom built system using Olympus optics and other companies’ optics and lasers.

ISS Spectrofluorometry –Steady State and Lifetime

The Chronos is a compact and portable spectrofluorometer for fluorescence lifetime measurements with picosecond resolution and for the acquisition of steady-state fluorescence measurements (polarization measurements at fixed wavelengths, kinetics studies; xenon arc lamp 230-850nm).
