Confocal Microscopy

Zeiss LSM 900 confocal, ILSB 324G

The Zeiss LSM 900 Confocal with Airyscan 2 is a super-resolution confocal laser scanning microscope. The inverted Axio Observer 7 microscope includes a motorized stage that allows tiling, capture of multiple data points during time-lapse experiments and a built-in environmental chamber with heat, CO2 and O2 control.

Diode Lasers:
  • 405, 488, 561, 640 nm
Detectors:
  • 2 GaAsP PMT detectors
  • 1 Airyscan detector (for 63×)
  • Transmitted light PMT
