  Working Principles
Click to ViewConfocal microscopy, is an optical imaging technique for increasing optical resolution and contrast of a micrograph by using a spatial pinhole to block out-of-focus light in image formation.Confocal microscopy provides the capacity for direct, noninvasive, serial optical sectioning of intact, thick, living specimens with a minimum of sample preparation as well as a marginal improvement in lateral resolution.Light travels through the sample under a conventional microscope as far into the specimen as it can penetrate, while a confocal microscope only focuses a smaller beam of light at one narrow depth level at a time.Capturing multiple two-dimensional images at different depths in a sample enables the reconstruction of three-dimensional structures (a process known as optical sectioning) within an object. Imaging Options: z-stacks, multi-color, DIC, time-lapse, FRET, FRAP Sample options: fixed tissues and cells

  User Instructions
3D reconstruction, time-lapse, FRET, FRAP and other photo-activation experiments. Ideal for imaging fixed tissue sections. Dye selection should be appropriate when using two or more dyes. The specimens, whether sectioned tissues or coverslip grown cultures, should be properly mounted before visualisation. Live cell culture visualisation facility is not available. To prevent the dye from bleaching off, avoid unnecessary exposure of the specimen/slide to the laser light source while working with the system
