schedule use  

Features
Olympus IX71 inverted microscope
Photometrics CoolSnap HQ high-resolution CCD camera
Applied Precision x-y-z precision motorized stage
Can be used to collect and analyze three-dimensional microscope images on multiple samples.
Long-term time-lapse three-dimensional images with a minimum of photodamage.
Equipped with an environmental chamber that allows control over temperature and carbon dioxide levels
Live cell tracking
Can combine vertical slice images (Z sections) into a 3 dimensional image and rotate this image as a movie
.

Objectives:
20X Olympus U APO/340, na 0.75, Ï/0.17
40X Olympus, U Plan S APO na 0.95 Ï/0.11-23/fn26.5  VIS 2
60X Olympus oil na 1.42 Ï/0.17/fn26.5 BFP1  VIS 2

Capabilities and Techniques
* Single or multiple-color fluorescence
