Confocal Microscope

IMG_0765 

The Leica TCS SP5 microscope utilizes an inverted DMI 6000 microscope which is equipped with a motorized xy stage and epifluorescence illumination. Filter cubes for blue and green excitation (I3, N2.1) are available for visual inspection and focusing of samples. The conventional scanner has one transmitted light detector and three reflected/fluorescence detectors. The excitation laser lines available are 458, 476, 488, 514, 543 and 633 nm and the microscope is equipped with 10x, 40x and 63x dry objectives and a 63x oil immersion objective.
