Zeiss 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.
Leica MC16 stereo fluorescence microscope. We use this microscope to manually manipulate eggs and embryos and to find fluorescent larvae.
Zeiss stereo microscope for working with fixed embryos and larvae.
1960’s era WILD stereomicroscope. The oldest working microscope in the lab.
Zeiss Axiovert S100. AKA Vlad the impaler. Eppendorf manipulator.
Zeiss 1970s era upright with phase contrast. We still use it every day to check sea urchin fertilizations.
