Our light microscopy laboratory contains five microscopy work stations:

  • Olympus BX63 light microscope with time laps function, with DIC and fluorescence optics (UV, blue and green filters), and an Olympus DP80 digital camera system.
  • Olympus IX83 inverted light microscope with time laps function, with DIC and fluorescence optics (UV, blue and green filters), and an Olympus DP80 digital camera system
  • Olympus BX-60 light microscope equipped with DIC and fluorescence optics and an Olympus DP73 digital camera for high resolution imaging and video recording.
  • Olympus IX-70 inverted light microscope with phase and fluorescence optics and an Olympus DP70 digital camera for high resolution imaging and video recording.  This workstation is also equipped with a Narashige micromanipulator and microinjector for cell processing and injections.
  • Olympus SZX-12 light microscope equipped with DIC and fluorescence optics and an Olympus DP73 digital camera for high resolution imaging and video recording.
