Confocal

Screen Shot 2016-06-29 at 11.05.47 PMLeica SP8  confocal microscope: 1 PMTs 2 HyDs and 4 solid state excitation lines (448, 488, 514 and 555 nm). Excellent live cell imaging rig.

 

 

 

IMG_0115Zeiss LSM 700 confocal microscope: 2 PMTs and 4 solid state excitation lines (405, 488, 555 and 633 nm) — so you can basically image most labels.  It works well for imaging of fluorescent protein fusions. The SIO machine shop built us a cooling stage insert so we can keep sea urchin embryos cool and happy while imaging.
