Room 6.028 - Zeiss Axiovert 200 Inverted Microscope Stand with LSM 710 Meta Confocal Scanner

Inverted point-scanning laser confocal microscope with spectral detection and Airyscan super resolution detector. 2-photon imaging with Mai Tai eHP 760-1040nm laser with dedicated BiG(GaAsP) detectors. Suited for imaging fixed samples on slides, samples with low fluorescence and live imaging.

Features Include:

  • Fully motorised X-Y-Z stage
  • High-sensitivity BiG detectors (GFP/mCherry and CFP/YFP) 
  • CO2 and temperature incubation for live cells and tissue
  • Tiled imaging
  • Multi-position imaging
  • Spectral imaging
