LSM780

The LSM780 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 is fitted with an ablation laser that enables pin-point ablation of single cells with the find-and-click of the mouse.

Zen confocal software including rapid 3D rendering.

Lasers:

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

(Ablation) 337nm

Detectors:

2xPMTs

1x Spectral detector (34 Channel GaAsP detector)

T-PMT

Extras:

Motorized stage, Andor ablation laser system.

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:

10x, 20x, 40x, 63x 1.0NA water dipping

HFSP funding to investigate cellular growth and stresses in plants

Apr 11, 2018

SLCU's Professor Henrik Jönsson is part of an international collaboration that has received funding from the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) to develop the first integrated model in plants investigating the effects from cellular growth and stresses on nuclear shape and genetic activity.

Research shows first land plants were parasitised by microbes

Apr 03, 2018

Sainsbury Laboratory researchers have found that the relationship between plants and filamentous microbes not only dates back millions of years, but that modern plants have maintained this ancient mechanism to accommodate and respond to microbial invaders.

A rare mineral that holds enticing potential as a new material for industrial and medical applications has been discovered on alpine plants through a collaboration between Sainsbury Laboratory and Cambridge University Botanic Garden.

Plants feel the heat

Feb 13, 2018

Sainsbury Laboratory scientists have solved a 79-year-old mystery by discovering how plants vary their response to heat stress depending on the time of day.

Fast-talking plants increase flower production within 24-hours of soil nutrient application

Jan 24, 2018

The molecular mechanisms enabling plants to quickly adapt their rate of flower production in response to changing nutrient levels in soil have been revealed by researchers at the Sainsbury Laboratory at the University of Cambridge.
