Services and Equipment


A1R2037a inverted Eclipse TiE with A1R confocal

Nikon Eclipse TiE inverted motorized microscope with perfect focus is attached to an A1R-SHR confocal, with an A1-DU4 detector and an A1-DUT Transmitted detector.  The system has a four-line LU4 laser launch with 404nm, 488nm, 561nm, and 640nm solid state (OPSL) lasers. It is equipped with both high-speed resonant and high-resolution Galvano confocal scanning modes. This system also has TIRF microscopy capabilities with a 405/488/561/638 quad cube and Quad, 525/50,60/50/ and 700/75 emission filters with NiDAQ fast triggering. TIRF allows for the selective excitation of fluorophores within ~100nm of the coverslip and on this system emissions are imaged with an iXon Ultra 897 Andor EMCCD camera, which has high quantum efficiency, extremely low noise (<e- with EM gain), and a fast readout of up to 17MHz. This system also has a stage top incubation system, Chamlide TC, for live-cell imaging with humidity and temperature controls, and it is currently hooked up to a 5% CO2 compressed air tank (tank located in 2047).
