Confocal Microscope Facility
About confocal microscopy
A confocal microscope detects the fluorescence emitted when the specimen is scanned by a laser. The result: high resolution images and the ability to directly observe dynamic processes in live cells. Cell components can be precisely localised, and accurate three-dimensional information is easily obtained. The behaviour and interactions of molecules can be studied. More....
inverted Leica TCS SP5 confocal microscope is equipped with a full range of lasers from 405nm to 633nm, as well as incubation and heating/cooling chambers.
