Microscopy & imaging
The Microscopy Unit contains 2 inverted fluorescent light microscopes, 3 confocal microscopes, a fluorescent binocular, a High Content imaging system and Light Sheet microscopes. Additionally, there are work stations containing image analysis software, including Deconvolution software, time-lapse, 3-D reconstruction and other software.
All users receive full training on a specific instrument prior to independent work.
Workshops and hands-on sessions are organized to provide researchers with training in fluorescent and confocal microscopy. Additionally, a forum is managed for open discussions relating to new technologies, and sharing of ideas and personal experiences with the various systems.
The Unit contains the following microscopes:
Light Sheet Fluorescent Microscope– Zeiss Z1, with dual sided illumination, 2 cameras and full incubation. An analysis computer is available for the Light Sheet data analysis.
- Confocal Zeiss LSM 510 META, an upright microscope with 4 lasers, including a multi-photon laser.
- Confocal Zeiss LSM 700, an inverted microscope with 4 lasers suitable for live cell imaging.
- Confocal Zeiss LSM 710, an inverted confocal with 6 laser-lines, 4 detectors and full incubation, dedicated for live cell imaging.
- Inverted Cell Observer– Zeiss Axiovert 200 inverted fluorescent microscope equipped with environmental chamber (temperature, CO2, humidity) for long-period time lapse applications.
- Inverted Leica DMI8– inverted fluorescent microscope.
High Content Analysis system:
- GE InCell Analyzer 2000– a high content acquisition and analysis system, equipped with environmental chamber (CO2 and temperature). In addition, high content analysis software is available – InCell Investigator, Spotfire, InCell translator and Miner server.
All users must download the User Statement and unit policy and sign it before starting to work (See the Ordering section on this site, subheading: User Statement and Unit Policy).
