Molecular and Cellular Imaging Equipment
The Denton DCP-1 is a Critical Point Dryer for preparing SEM samples.
The Denton Desk V TSC is a high resolution unit suitable for oxidizing and non-oxidizing metals.
The Leica EM HPM100 High Pressure Freezer is used for freezing aqueous specimens
The SH800Z cell sorter permits sorting of a wide range of cell sizes and applications into tubes or well-plates. It is equipped with 4 lasers and 6 fluorescence as well as 2 scatter detectors. The custom BCC300AMS Class II biosafety cabinet provides protection for personnel and products.
A versatile, high-performance instrument with three modes (high vacuum, low vacuum and ESEM) to image a wide range of samples, with or without preparation. Equipped with a Quorum PP3010 Cryo-Unit to freeze, fracture, etch and sputter coat temperature sensitive samples.
A 200kV field emission TEM that is used for cryo-temperature, low dose operation and atomic resolution.
An upright Leica DM 6000B microscope connected to a Leica TCS SP5 system with 8 visible laser excitations and a Radius 405 nm laser.
Image acquisition with Volocity for regular confocal imaging and with MetaMorph for Super-resolution.
The Agilent BioTek Cytation C10 confocal imaging reader combines automated confocal and widefield microscopy with conventional multimode microplate reading. It gives exquisite resolution and optical sectioning capabilities for many sample types.
The inverted Nikon Eclipse Ti2 microscope, equipped with a high precision encoded stage and Perfect Focus System is specifically designed for automated acquisition of large image files, and fast ratiometric imaging.
The Zeiss Axiozoom V.16 combines a 16x zoom with a high numerical aperture lens. It is capable of bright field colour imaging and fluorescence imaging of large fields or multiple samples.
An upright Leica DM 5000B connected to a Hamamatsu Orca-Flash4.0 digital camera and Volocity™ imaging software.
