The facility is located at Building 149, 13th Street, Room 6028B, Charlestown.
This Core consists of a Zeiss LSM 5 Pascal laser confocal microscope. The Zeiss RGB vario laser module consists of argon laser (458/488/514 nm) and two helium-neon lasers (543 and 633 nm). A Zeiss Axiovert 200 fully motorized light microscope is available with fluorescence, bright-field, phase-contrast and Nomarski (DIC) capabilities. Image acquisition and analyses are performed using Zeiss LSM 5 Pascal Confocal Microscopy Software (Release 3.2) on 2 workstations. Zeiss Physiology software is available also. Live cell imaging is available using a Zeiss temperature controller with custom chamber and heating stage.
and triple-labeling experiments
