The Spinning Disk Confocal Microscope is an Axio Observer fully motorized inverted microscope for transmitted light and epifluorescence. It is equipped with a temperature and CO2 stage incubator, making it ideal for live imaging experiments.
Axio Observer microscopes can be used for bright field, phase contrast, differential interference contrast, VAREL contrast and PlasDIC contrast transmitted light techniques and epifluorescence.
The typical fields of application include: examination of human blood and tissue samples, observation of intracellular processes in living cell cultures, cell/cell interactions, motility, growth, measurement of potentials, drug detection, microinjection, IVF (in-vitro fertilization), toxicity studies, patch-clamp techniques, ion measurements, digital recordings, time lapse studies with automated processes, z-sectioning, deconvolution, visualization of molecular structures, Fura (Ca measurement), GFP, optical tweezers and scissors, single molecule detection, total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF).
