Advanced Microscopy Facility

This comprehensive light microscopy facility provides access to confocal microscopy on two Zeiss LSM 710 microscopes and a spinning disk-based high-speed microscope for live-cell imaging. The DeltaVision OMX super-resolution microscopy system provides both structured illumination microscopy (SIM) and localization microscopy (PALM/STORM). For regular fluorescence digital microscopy the facility has inverted and upright standard wide-field fluorescence microscopy systems as well as a multispectral wide-field upright microscope.
