Tariff (public) : 15.66 €/hour
Tariff (private) : -- €/hour
Associated technologies:
  • 2D imaging
  • 3D imaging

  • Brief description:
    State-of-the-art, motorized, zen software-driven, upright widefield epifluorescence microscope equipped with an apotome slider.
    Fluorescence and brightfield/darkfield (w/b camera).
    For any multidimensional acquisition (Z, lambda and t).
    Objectives:
    5X Achrostigmat 0.12
    10X Plan Apochromat 0.45 NA
    16X Plan NEOFLUAR 0.5 Imm PH2
    25X Plan NEOFLUAR 0.8 NA Imm Korr
    40X Plan Apochromat 1.3 NA oil
    63X Plan Apochromat 1.4 NA oil
    100X Plan Apochromat 1.4 NA oil

    Detector :
    1 Zeiss CCD Axiocam Mrm 1.4 MP monochrome camera
    (1388 x 1040 pixels, 6.45µm pixel size)

    BSL1 environment
    Light sources :
    Autocentering HBO 103W arc lamp for episcopic illumination.
    Tungsten filament bulb for diascopic illumination

    Motorization :
    Binocular tube, stage (Z), fluorescence filter set turret, condenser turret, objective turret.

    Fluorescence filter sets :
    Hoechst
    GFP HE
    Rhodamine HE
    Texas Red
    Cy5
    Available acquisition techniques:
    Any regular 2D or 3D acquisition.

    User-defined protocols
    Image quality :
    Both axial resolution and contrast in epifluorescence mode may be improved using the Grid Projection Illumination technique (aka "apotome"). The grid lines spacing is optimized for 40x and 63x lenses. The spatial resolution may be further improved using deconvolution (Huygens or Zen software).

    Polariser +/- a green filter for Picrosirius Red imaging.
    Available acquisition techniques:
    Any slide acquisition automation in both fluorescence and transmission modes. Images acquired with both color and w/b cameras are automatically realigned.
    Mosaic acquisition (full slide scan, slices on a slide scan) with user defined autofocus mode and autofocus map.

    User-defined protocols
    Image quality:
    Both axial resolution and contrast in epifluorescence mode may be improved using the Grid Projection Illumination technique (aka "apotome"). The grid lines spacing is automatically set (motorized apotome slide). The spatial resolution may be further improved using deconvolution (Huygens or Zen software).
