Super-resolution Microscopes


Leica TCS SP8 STED 3X CW 3D is an inverted confocal microscope equipped with motorized stage.  It can be used to acquire 3D images from cell or tissue samples or individual images from given focal plane without distortions from unfocused signal. You can also aqcuire cross section images.  Motorized stage can be used to acquire timelapse images from multiple locations as the system's in-built autofocus ensures that your sample stays in focus for the duration of your experiment. The microscope is equipped for live imaging. 


The system can be used to aqcuire super-resolution images using the 592 nm depletion laser using the 93x glycerol objective.  One color STED is possible with almost any green color, but two color imaging requires very specific dyes to work.
