Confocal Microcrope: Zeiss LSM 780 AxioObserver.Z1 (inverted configuration)
Location: Broad CIRM Center (BCC) 309C
Description: The LSM 780 is our most sensitive confocal microscope. It is equipped with a multi-spectral array GaAsP detector for increased sensitivity and lower noise.
The array detector can capture 32 channels simultaneously in “lambda” mode. Weak fluorescent signals are more easily imaged with the GaAsP detector, and the increased sensitivity allows for faster acquisition and reduced sample illumination.
The microscope also has:
- a 32 channel multispectral array detector (GaAsP) + 2 fluorescent detectors + 1 transmitted detector;
- a motorized xyz stage; and
- a temperature and CO2 controlled environmental chamber.
