Confocal Microscope Platform

The MultiPark confocal microscope platform currently has two Leica SP8 laser scanning confocal microscopes for imaging live and fixed tissue and cells. The microscopes are inverted and include a motorized stage and two detectors (a standard PMT detector and a Leica hybrid detector), allowing for two-channel confocal scanning with spectral detection. The systems are located in BMC A10 and A11. For more information about the two systems, please visit their respective subpage.

Below is a table highlighting key points for the two systems:

  A10 A11
Objectives 5x (air), 20x (air), 40x (oil), 63x (oil) 10x (air), 20x (water), 63x (water)
