The ALM Core has a number of different imaging setups that each excel at different applications. Below is an overview of instruments located on Marquam Hill in LBRB (see About for more location information).
- Zeiss LSM 880 on inverted microscope stand
- Zeiss LSM 780 on inverted microscope stand
- Zeiss LSM 710 on inverted microscope stand (part of super-resolution system)
- Olympus FV1000 on upright microscope stand
Our laser-scanning confocal microscopes are equipped with highly corrected objectives with high-numerical apertures for optimal multi-color imaging and optical sectioning.
Spinning Disk Confocal
- Yokogawa CSU-W1 on Nikon TiE with HCA capabilities
Spinning disk confocal microscopy outperforms laser-scanning microscopy for live-cell imaging. These setups accept mutli-well plates for image-based screening assays.
High Resolution Widefield
- Zeiss Elyra PS.1 with LSM 710 laser-scanning confocal and Airyscan
Structured illumination-based and Airyscan super-resolution microscopy are very accessible super-resolution technologies. One of our setups is also equipped for single-molecule localization techniques, such as PALM and STORM.
- Zeiss LSM 7MP on upright imaging stand
This setup is built for imaging intravitally in live rodents.
- Essen Biosciences IncuCyte ZOOM
Imaging device inside a tissue-culture incubator to follow cell growth and differentiation over days or quantify cell migration, angiogenesis and neurite outgrowth over time.
