Zeiss Cell Observer SD

Image "Light Microscopy:MB_Spinning_Disc.png"Main Applications: dual-color 3d/4d spinning disk confocal imaging
Person in Charge: Felix Scharte
Location: Building 38, Room E02f, S2-laboratory

Brief Description: This setup is a live cell imaging platform for dual-color high-speed confocal imaging using the CSU-X1 spinning disc technology from Yokogawa and two highly-sensitive electron multiplying cameras. Almost the entire microscope from filter wheels to sample incubation parameters are computer-controlled via the Zeiss Zen 2012 software. The Definite Focus system from Zeiss allows for long-term time-lapse experiments without any focus drifts. The DirectFRAP unit from Zeiss is able to switch fluorophores exactly at the same time by continuous diaphragm imaging.
