HHMI Zeiss LSM 880

Upright laser scanning confocal microscope This confocal is on a fixed stage upright microscope. With the Fast Airyscan Module this microscope can now scan images at high speed, comparable to that of a spinning disc confocal. The Airyscan module allows for super-resolution microscopy and offers a superior signal to noise ratio compared to a normal confocal. This microscope has the multi-channel QUASAR detector for spectral imaging. The tiling function in the Zen Black software and the motorized stage allows one to collect multiple images across a large field of view using a high magnification objective. This microscope was installed in November of 2017. Location: Beckman Institute Basement Room B133G.

•    This upright microscope has the LSM 880 Scanhead with 32 channel GaAsP spectral PMT + 2 MA-PMTs and 1 detector for transmitted light.
