Microscope Demonstration:

Confocal Microscopy system for BL-2 live imaging facility in the Microscopy and Imaging Center


The MIC is in the process of selecting a confocal microscopy system for its new BL-2 imaging laboratory. The new confocal microscope will have both the conventional galvo as well as a resonant scanner for high speed imaging, fully motorized inverted microscope frame with focus stabilization for extended time-lapse imaging, highly sensitive detectors, stage-top incubator for maintaining live cells, advanced control/processing/analysis software, high quality for imaging live cells and tissues, and many more features.

 Concurrent with each of the confocal microscope system demos, the MIC will also host a demonstration of a modern upright research microscope for conventional transmitted/reflected light imaging, including fluorescence.  This microscope is also considered for use with the new Abberior Instruments STEDYCON module for superresolution imaging (coming soon to MIC).

 At this time, demonstrations of confocal systems from Olympus and Nikon have completed and the last demonstration (Leica Microsystems) is coming up. We encourage current and potential users to evaluate the microscope with your samples and provide feedback on the microscopes and your experimental needs to the MIC staff. We cannot image BL-2 samples during the demonstrations because the MIC is not yet approved for BL-2, but we plan to add this capability this spring.
