LSM880

The LSM880 upright confocal is particularly suitable for high quality 3D imaging using combinations of fluorescent proteins or dyes that would otherwise be difficult to distinguish. It can fit larger objects via the attached Axio-Examiner microscope stand, making it particularly useful for time-lapse imaging of whole plants. The Airyscan module permits super-resolution imaging, achieving lateral resolutions of up to 120nm.

Zen confocal software including rapid 3D rendering.

 

Lasers:

(Confocal) 405nm, 440nm, 458nm, 488nm, 514nm, 561nm, 633nm

 

Detectors:

2xPMTs

1x Spectral detector (32 Channel GaAsP QUASAR detector)

1x Airyscan detector

T-PMT

 

Extras:

Motorized stage.

 

Objectives:

A core set of Zeiss confocal objectives are available:

Dry:

10x, 20x

Immersion:

40x 1.3NA oil

63x 1.2NA water

63x 1.4NA oil

Water dipping:

SLCU helps reveal another layer in the strigolactone signalling pathway

Nov 23, 2018

An interdisciplinary collaboration between structural biologists and plant scientists has revealed another layer in the signalling pathway of strigolactone – a plant hormone that plays a key role in shoot branching and other plant development processes.

Circadian clock imparts continuous control over the timing of cell division

Nov 15, 2018

SLCU researchers have demonstrated that the circadian clock is more complex than a simple ‘on-off switch’ when it comes to controlling cell division.
