Information about the microscope:

This system it is set up for live cell imaging and allows efficient detection of fluorescence with a high sensitivity, which minimizes the damage to living cells. A confocal has improved image quality because it filters information from out-of-plane light sources. Samples can be imaged in layers by moving the focal plane in precise steps through it with the IX81 motorized z-drive objective movers. It is possible to take several images per second or for long-term experiments with longer time-intervals.
