  • Gaviola: Fluorescence lifetime imaging with one- and multi-photon excitation

    Named after Enrique Gaviola (1900 – 1989), an Argentinian physicist who was the first to measure accurate fluorescence lifetimes. A Leica SP8 WLL DIVE FALCON with the upright DM8 stand. more

  • Stellaris: Inverted confocal with fluorescence lifetime

    Leica Stellaris 8 confocal microscope on a DMi8 stand with cell incubation, excitation from 405 to 790 nm and fluorescence lifetime equipment (FALCON) more

  • Göppert: Multi-photon microscope with excitation up to 1300 nm

    Named after Maria Göppert-Mayer (1906 - 1972), a German-American physicist who predicted the two photon effect in her thesis. Manufacturer's designation: Leica SP8 MP. Upright microscope with a fixed, stable stage. Multi-photon excitation continously from 680 - 1300 nm. Thanks to additional 488, 562 and 633 nm lasers, this instrument also can double as confocal microscope. more

  • Zernike: Bright field microscope with color camera

    Named after Frits Zernike (1888 - 1966), a Dutch physicist who invented phase contrast microscopy. Leica DM2500. Upright microscope equipped for bright field, dark field and phase contrast and with a color camera. more

  • Harvey: Upright motorized fluorescence microscope

    Named after William Harvey (1578–1657), an English physician who described the blood circulation. Manufacturer's designation: Leica DM6. Upright fluorescence microscope with a stable, motorized stage. Fast switchable LED fluorescence excitation. Sensitve b/w camera for fluorescence plus color camera for bright field. more

  • Stokes: Fluorescence stereo microscope

    Named after Sir George Gabriel Stokes (1819 - 1903), an Irish mathematician and physicist who discovered and named fluorescence. Manufacturers designation: Leica M205 FA. Large enough working distance to be used for preparations. Magnification up to over 200x, camera for documentation. more

  • Lovelace: Imaging Workstation

    Named after Ada Lovelace (1815 - 1852), the world's first programmer and a British matematician (Wikipedia de|en). Lovelace is a powerful imaging workstation with several imaging programs installed. more
