Fluorescence and confocal microscopes hosted by the Microscopy Facility include:
A four-laser confocal microscope using auto-setup to install objectives, lasers, and detectors for unique dye combinations. FRAP (with SIM scanning), FRET, and spectral imaging are available.
A fully automated confocal laser-scanning microscope with four lasers in a self-contained box, allowing for applications including live-cell imaging and BSL2 work.
A fully motorized fluorescence microscope with a Tokai Hit incubator for live-cell imaging.
A microscope system with two configurations: a biological configuration (with automated 3-color plus DIC image collection) and a materials configuration (with polarization, darkfield, and reflected brightfield light).
