  • Malpighi: Upright confocal with physiology stand

    Named after Marcello Malpighi (1628 – 1694), an Italian biologist and physician who, among other things, discovered the blood capillaries. Manufacturer's designation: Leica SP8X. Upright confocal microscope with a fixed, stable stage. 405 nm and pulsed "white light" Laser (470 - 670 nm) for excitation. Gated hybrid detectors and PMTs for detection. more

  • Kellner: Inverted confocal with STED and light sheet

    Named after Carl Kellner (1826 - 1855), German microscope builder and entrepreneur. Manufacturers designation: Leica SP8X STED 3D DLS. Inverted confocal microscope with 405 nm and pulsed "white light" Laser (470 - 670 nm). STED depletion lasers at 592, 660 and 770, the later one pulsed, for depletion in 2D and 3D. An add-on allows light sheet microscopy. Details. more

  • Jabłoński: Fluorescence microscope with CCD-Camera

    Named after Aleksander Jabłoński (1898 - 1980), a Polish physicist who developped the Jablonski diagram to explain fluorescence. Leica DM2500 upright fluorescence microscope with a sensitive black and white camera. more
