Array Tomography is a light microscopic method of analysis that allows increased structural detail to be achieved at the light microscope level such as that associated with individual synapses.
The facility is equipped with, Olympus FV1200 confocal microscope (without multi-photon capability) consisting of an Argon 458/477/488/514 nm laser, a Green HeNE 543 nm, a Red HeNe 633 nm laser, and a Coherent ULTRA near infrared tunable Titanium Sapphire laser (690 - 1040 nm). The systems allow a range of experiments with fixed or live samples with time lapse function available on all systems making it possible to perform experiments over time courses in 5 different channels. Investigators with expertise in mammalian cells, yeast cells, Drosophila and Zebra fish embryos and ovaries, bacteria, and other tissues are available to help the users.
