Microscopes

Biology Department microscopy resources include a laser scanning confocal microscope, automated and manual epifluorescent microscopes, fluorescent stereoscopes, a field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM), and a transmission electron microscope (TEM). 

Confocal microscope Nikon A1R inverted microscope equipped with resonant scanner, spectral imager, perfect focus technology and fully automated stage with temperate regulated growth chamber for live cell imaging. This confocal is equipped with 404, 488, 561, and 639 nm laser lines.
