Zeiss LSM 510 META

Inverted laser scanning confocal microscope with multiphoton (NLO) laser This confocal is on an inverted motorized Zeiss Axiovert 200 microscope. This microscope has the multi-channel META detector for spectral imaging. The multiphoton/two-photon laser (MP, a category of nonlinear optics, NLO) allows for deeper imaging of tissues. This microscope has a manual stage and no incubation. Two-photon imaging can be done with the NDD detectors as well as the internal detectors. Location: Beckman Institute Basement Room B133G.

•   This inverted microscope has the LSM 510 Scan head with 3 PMT detectors, 8 channel spectral detector (META), 2 GaAsp NDDs and 1 detector for transmitted light.
•    5 Laser lines: 3 from Argon and 2 from solid state lasers.
•    Coherent Chameleon II multiphoton (2P) tunable Laser.
•    NDDs are for imaging with the multiphoton laser and are more sensitive than PMTs.
•    Manual X,Y stage and motorized Z focus.
•    Internal PMTs allow for far red imaging of NBT autofluorescence.
