Key instrumentation
Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope

Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope Leica TCS SP2 equipped with 3 fluorescence PMT detectors

Technical description
The instrument allows users to perform 3D imaging, spatially-resolved emission, spatially resolved FRET and FRAP, and a transmission PMT. The lasers available allow 8 excitation lines, and the microscope table allows motorized motion in 3D for imaging of larger samples. Compared to the Leica TCS SP8 microscope, this instrument represent a “entry level” version.
Research areas and applications

The instrument allows 3D chemical mapping of complex systems and interfaces; Electronics & Semiconductor, Automotive & Transportation; Metals & Machine Engineering; Medical Device QA/QC; Technical Cleanliness, Metallography, Material Analysis, Sample Preparation for Materials Science; live Cell Imaging, 3D Cell Culture.
