Capabilities: 

The DeltaVision RT Deconvolution Microscopy System includes a research-grade inverted Olympus IX 70 microscope (with objectives from 4x to 100x, a cooled CCD camera, fiber-optic coupled mercury arc lamp, high-speed filter changers, electronic shutters and a high precision x-y-z positioning system) that is coupled to a computer workstation running Linux and vendor-supplied software called SoftWorX. Automated multiple wavelength (Blue, Green, Red and Far-red) and/or time lapse imaging experiments can be performed on either fixed tissues or cultured cells (Temperature and gas-mix can be controlled). The Microscope is capable of high resolution fluorescence images, 2D and 3D time-lapse, lower light intensity (compared to a confocal laser) means it is friendlier to live cells, has a greater dynamic range (4096 intensity levels) compared to older confocals, up to 4 probes per data set (limited to the available filter sets). Fees Training: Users must complete a minimum of 3 hours of training time before they will be allowed to use the instrument without assistance. Cost is currently $25 per hour. Routine use: Investigators will be charged a fee of $25 per hour for time on the instrument (microscope use and/or computation are currently the same fee).
