Composite microscopic image taken using FILM equipmentA Leica SP5 inverted confocal microscope with a tunable infrared laser for multiphoton imaging, Flim detector, motorised stage and full incubation chamber.

Advantages of this microscope

  • Live multiphoton imaging for deep tissue penetration, maximum confocality
  • 4 other lasers (Diode 405nm, Argon 488, Diode 543, Diode 633)
  • Slide, dish and multiwell formats
  • Flim detector for fluorescence lifetime imaging (Flim/FRET, intracellular environment)
  • FRAP
  • Automatic multipoint 4D imaging and stitching
