Widefield Microscopes

 

3I Marianas (3I intelligent Imaging Innovations) is a fluorescence microscope designed for imaging live cells with multiple colours and techiques. Available imaging techniques are wide-field, TIRF and spinning disk confocal. There are nine light sources (5 LEDs and 4 lasers) and fast switching times between imaging techniques and light sources so that one can make almost any combination of videos. Additionally it is possible to do photomanipulation experiments (FRAP an photo activation) . Microscope has a motorised stage which can be utilized for multiposition imaging or image plates.

Leica DM6000B is an upright fluorescence wide field microscope that can also aqcuire bright field, polarisation and DIC images. It is meant for fixed samples labeled with fluorescence or histological labels. Polarisation and DIC contrast can be used to acquire images from samples without labels. Motorized stage makes it possible to image big areas with good resolution while 1,25x and 2,5x objectives can be used to aqcuire an image field quickly in one go when using transmitted light. Stage has capacity either for four slides or for one 127x85mm plate.
