Director, Microscopy and Imaging Suite
This laser scanning confocal is built upon a Nikon inverted microscope platform. It utilizes Nikon's new ultra-fast resonant scanner as well as an adjustable speed high resolution galvano scanner. Both are housed in a hybrid scan head enabling simultaneous use or fast switching between them. This system has a TIRF system (total internal reflectance fluorescence) which incorporates a new generation Photometrics sCMOS camera utilizing backside illumination sensors. This camera permits fast and efficient image collection for TIRF and epi-fluorescence imaging. The microscope's stage houses an INU environmental control chamber. There are also inserts for imaging slides, dishes, and multiple well microplates.
