- We have a new Light Sheet microscope, the LaVision Ultramicroscope, now up and running in the facility. This is ideal for imaging large, fixed and cleared specimens (up to 1 cm in diameter) in multiple colors. Please consult the BIRC staff for advice on appropriate clearing techniques before preparing your specimens for imaging on this system.
- A second brand-new addition to the BIRC is the Yokagawa/Olympus CellVoyager (CV1000) system. This is a medium-throughput spinning disk confocal system with full environmental control and the ability to image many different regions in a single timelapse experiment with maximum ease and flexibility.
