Microscopy Laboratory

Our Microscopy laboratory is a well-equipped facility for postgraduate biomedical research.

Zeiss LSM 510 Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope or a Modified Zeiss Cell Observer system featuring the Zeiss definite focus, Colibri LED illumination and AxioVision 4 digital image processing software with Axiovision tracking module is available.

Both of these systems allow the capture of high resolution single image and z-section acquisition of 3 fluorochromes simultaneously. The cell observer system also incorporates an incubation chamber enabling live cell imaging over several days and a motorised stage which allows imaging of a sample over a tiled area that extends beyond the field of view.
