SUPER-RESOLUTION IMAGING

 

ZEISS ELYRA S1

Zeiss Elyra SIM

Using structured illumination the Elyra can capture multi-colour fluorescence images with up to twice the resolution of a conventional light microscope using standard dyes. Resolution improvement in XY and Z. Motorized XY-stage for automated multi-position and tiled image acquisition. Live cell imaging with Tokai stage top incubation unit and Definite Focus hardware autofocus. Optional spinning disk FLIM imaging.

Microscope

Fully automated Axio Observer.Z1 SR inverted stand. Triple CFP/GFP/DsRed cube for conventional epifluorescence illumination with X-Cite 120PC metal-halide lamp.

LEICA SP8X gated STED

SP8X STED

Inverted confocal microscope, very flexible and completely filter-free system (spectral detector and AOBS). Motorized XY-stage for automated multi-position and tiled image acquisition. Tandem scanner with conventional and fast resonant scanner. Equipped for live imaging with hardware autofocus. Super-resolution gated STED mode with 592/660/775nm depletion lasers improving resolution in XY and Z.

Microscope

Fully automated DMi8 inverted stand with DIC. DAPI, CFP and GFP/Cy3 filter sets for conventional epifluorescence illumination with EL6000 metal-halide lamp.

ZEISS STORM

Zeiss STORM

Using single molecule imaging individual blinking events are used to build a high resolution 2D/3D localisation map achieving a resolution of up to 20nm. Motorized XY-stage for automated multi-position and tiled image acquisition and Definite Focus hardware autofocus to reduce Z drift. Illumination mode can be adjusted with the automated Cairn OptoTIRF unit between TIRF and conventional illumination.

Microscope

Fully automated Axio Observer Z1 inverted stand with laser safe microscope enclosure. GFP and DsRed filtercubes for conventional epifluorescence illumination with EL6000 metal-halide lamp.
