Brief description:
Nikon widefield inverted microscope for epifluorescence and TIRF acquisition for 2D and 3D live imaging coupled to the FRAP/photo-activation/photoconversion technics. This microscope is also dedicated to the super-resolution technics (2D-3D) as PALM and STORM.
Controlled by Metamorph software
10X Plan Apochromat 0.45NA air
20X Plan Apochromat 0.75NA air
60X Plan Apochromat 1.4NA oil
100X Plan TIRF Apochromat 1.49NA oil

1 EMCCD iXon 897 Ultra Andor camera
(512*512, 16µm pixel size)

Temperature and CO2 control.
Acquisition thanks to the Roper iLAS2:
-widefield microscopy
-multi-colour TIRF microscopy
-FRAP/photo-activation/photo-conversion in single point, predefined ROI or on the fly
-PALM or STORM super-resolution

The Multi-dimensional Acquisition module in Metamorph controls the multi-series of images in multi-channels, multi-positions, multi-Z planes, multi-timepoints.
