Point-scanning confocal

On-site demonstration - Caliber ID RS-G4 - large area scanning confocal microscope

Wednesday, July 26 (Noon-5pm), Thursday, July 27 (9am-5pm), and Friday, July 28 (9am-2pm) in Life Sciences North, room 429 (MAP - same room as Leica DMI6000).

"The new RS-G4 from Caliber I.D. is a large-format, resonant-scanning confocal microscope, offering multiple laser lines (405/488/561/640/785) for single, sequential or simultaneous image acquisition of fluorescent labels.

UA Imaging Cores - summer microscopy workshop

The Summer Microscopy Workshop is open to all UA students and researchers. It is geared towards those who will be using confocal microscopy or superresolution for their research projects. This free two day workshop will consist of lectures in the mornings and instrument demonstrations on Thursday afternoon. Topics to be discussed will be:

New techniques available on the Zeiss 880 Laser Scanning Confocal Microscopes at the UA

Roundtable discussion Wed. April 13 at noon in room 601 Gould-Simpson Building

Installation was completed in March 2016 of the campus’ new Zeiss 880 inverted microscope laser scanning confocal microscope (LSCM) and the Zeiss 880 fixed stage upright multi-photon LSCM with airyscan (a new super resolutions technique).

ORD announces the arrival of three new Zeiss optical microscopes

The Office for Research & Discovery (ORD) is pleased to announce the arrival two new state-of-the-art laser scanning confocal microscopes and a structured illumination system (SIM) in the ORD imaging facilities in January and Feb 2016.  These unique and enabling microscopes will be a huge advancement in the microscopy equipment available to researchers on campus!

Leica SP-8 confocal - on-site demonstration

Instrument: Leica SP8X, White Light Laser Confocal with gated HyD detectors and Resonance Scanning

Deeper fluorescence imaging – an examination of clearing techniques

Many researchers would love to image deeper into fluorescently labeled, sectioned tissue without the need to use two-photon microscopy.  Deep imaging suffers from the effects of a number of optically-related artifacts.  Several recent techniques have been proposed to alter the optical properties of the sample (CLARITY, SCALE, etc) and greatly improve the ability to image deeper.  Shane Andrews (Olympus America) will review these techniques, sharing their pluses and minuses, as well as tips (including new Olympus specialty objective lenses) for success.
