What it's good for
- Acquisition of up to 2 color channels simultaneously or sequentially
- Fixed cells or tissues in a dish, or on a slide with a #1.5 coverslip
- Live Tissues or animals
What it's not good for
- More than 2 channels and spectral separation
- Live Cells: Can be very harsh for some live cell applications and is in a upright format
Principles of operation
Laser light of specific wavelengths is scanned across the sample and filtered before detection to produce a high resolution image composed of a small optical slice of the sample.
- Microscope: Olympus Upright
- Mai Tai MultiPhoton tunable between 620nm and 980nm
- Microscope objectives
- 20x Water Dipping (.95 NA)
- 10x Water Dipping (.30 NA)
- 40x Water Dipping (.80 NA)
