Light microscopy

The Biological Imaging Facility supports individual laboratories by providing excellent, high-end optics and capability. The Facility has a Zeiss AxioPlan 2M upright microscope with 100W Halogen and 100W Mercury light sources and a Zeisss AxioVert 200M inverted microscope with 100W Halogen and 50W Mercury light sources. Fluorescence filter sets for most applications are available. Objectives include:

Faculty in the Biology Department use a wide range of light microscopy techniques, including various methods of interference contrast, fluorescence, enhanced video microscopy and computer-assisted tracing.
