Confocal Microscopy

Confocal Microscopy provides researchers with the ability to visualise a variety of samples, from monolayers and small organisms, such as developing fly and fish embryos. .

This is accomplished using a variety of optical imaging modalities, including laser scanning confocal microscopy  (LSCM) and whole field optical sectioning (Spinning disk).

These technologies provide us with high resolution imaging, giving the scientist a clearer picture of macro, cellular, and subcellular structure and function.

We can image single or multiple labeled specimens, using magnifications from 4X to 150X with a temporal resolution up to 400 fps. We have experience imaging in mammalian cells, yeast cells, Drosophila and Zebrafish embryos and ovaries, bacteria, sections of brain and other tissues, in both fixed and live specimens.
