CBIS Confocal Equipment

CBIS Confocal: TCS SP5 X

The Leica TCS SP5X Confocal Micro-scope System with multi-photon laser (MP) consists of an inverted microscope DMI 6000 CS with a XY scanning stage, Z motorized focus as well as a Super-z galvo stage, for higher speed and repeatability.

CBIS Confocal: 3I diSPIM

Live imaging directly involves inevitable tradeoffs of spatial resolution, temporal resolution and phototoxicity. This is especially true when interrogating imaging in three dimensions and/or three-dimensional samples over time (3D and/or 4D imaging) to obtain a complete picture of many dynamic subcellular processes.

CBIS Confocal: LSM 900

Airyscan is a hexogen array of 32 concentrically arranged GaAsP detector; each detector approx. 0.2AU in diameter thus total detection area approx. 1.25AU to acquire most of the Airy disk all at once. The confocal pinhole itself remains open and does not block light, thus more photons are collected for the improved resolution and S/N.

CBIS Confocal: FLUOVIEW FV3000

The new Olympus FLUOVIEW FV3000 confocal has been setup in confocal core since March 2017. FV3000 is designed not only for high sensitivity and speed imaging for live cell on 2D-6D (x,y,λ,z,t,p), but also microplate imaging and complex screening.
