STED microscope2

The Department of Genetics recently acquired an Abberior 3D STED microscope including multi-color FLIM capabilities. This system is open for all users and training as well as use of the microscope can be requested using either the CAIC booking system (PPMS login required) or contacting us directly. 

This TwinHead STED microscope is composed of an inverted as well as an upright microscope frame and allows super resolution imaging for a wide range of samples.

Multiple excitation laser lines and multiple depletion lasers in combination with multiple highly efficient APD detectors ensure that the most challenging samples can be images with resolutions down to a few 10 nm. See a few examples of use to the left.

Further information about this system is also available on our PPMS booking system (after logging in)
