  1. Two-photon confocal microscope


  1. Resource Description
    The Olympus FV1000 MPE Multiphoton Laser Scanning Confocal is equipped with a DeepSee MaiTai titanium -sapphire laser, a 25x1.05 N.A. 2mm working distance water immersion objective lens, four non-descanned detectors and a forward, second harmonic generation (SHG) detector. This microscope enables researchers to image deep into fixed or living tissues since the infrared light can penetrate up to 1 millimeter into the sample. Several support instruments are available for intravital, live cell or live tissue imaging including a temperature controlled imaging chamber and a rodent oximeter. A vibratome is available for thick sectioning of fixed tissues. This system also functions as a standard confocal microscope system with 3 fluorescence detectors and a transmitted detector for DIC imaging. A motorized stage is available for capturing tiled images or tiled image stacks. Additional water immersion objective lenses are available for use with the Multiphoton including a 40X lens and a 100X lens. Dry and oil objective lenses can also be used on this system.
