Our Light Microscopy Suite enables Confocal, Epifluorescent, Bright Field, DIC and Phase Contrast imaging, as well as Slide Scanning. Live time lapse imaging can be done on the new Nikon A1R microscope fitted with an Okolab incubation chamber for temperature and gas control, as well as the Zeiss LSM510 and Axiovert 135.
We provide training in the use of all systems and will aid in experiment design to ensure that you generate the images that you need.
The Nikon A1R comprises a dual scanhead design, allowing the use of both the galvano and resonant scanners - offering the choice of extreme imaging speed, or high resolution.
A laser scanning confocal microscope, the Bio-Rad E2100 can perform confocal fluorescent imaging with minimal fluorophore crosstalk.
This Hamamatsu slide scanner allows the scanning of up to six standard (76mm x 26mm) or two double-size (76mm x 52mm) slides in a variety of modes: manual, semi-automatic, and automatic.
The Zeiss Axioplan 2 Upright Microscope offers clear transmitted light imaging (Bright field, DIC, and Phase Contrast) as well as fluorescent imaging via an HBO 100W lamp.
As a widefield solution, the Zeiss Axiovert 200M is fitted with an AxioCam MRc5 for colour imaging in a variety of transmitted light modalities.
The epifluorescent Time Lapse microscope consists of the Zeiss Axiovert 135 chassis with a QIClick CCD Camera for imaging brightfield and fluorescence.
The Zeiss LSM 510 Meta confocal microscope is fitted with a Solent Scientific incubation chamber which provides temperature and CO2 control, facilitating live imaging.
