Basic epifluorescence microscopy

evosLife Technologies EVOS FL is particularly good for total beginners to microscopy. It uses light cubes that cover a wide range of applications.  It provides quick, high quality images. There are no eyepieces, instead an easy to use interface enables the user to take quick snapshots through to time-lapse imaging using the in-built monochrome camera. Fluorescence illumination is provided by LEDs within specific light cubes for imaging a variety of fluorescent proteins and dyes.

 

Light cubes available for:

DAPI, CFP, YFP, FRET, GFP, RFP, TexasRed, Brightfield

Objectives:

1.25x, 4x, 10x, 20x, 40x.

100x (oil immersion).

 

Inverted Fluorescence Microscope Leica DM IL LED

Inverted Fluorescence Microscope (Leica DM IL LED)

Inverted fluorescence microscope best used for screening.

Filters: 

DAPI, GFP, RFP and brightfield

Objectives 

5x, 10x, 20x, 40x (all dry)

Phase contrast (with 40x objective only)

Noisy gene atlas to help reveal how plants ‘hedge their bets’ in race for survival

Jan 24, 2019

As parents of identical twins will tell you, they are never actually identical, even though they have the same genes. This is also true in the plant world. Now, new research by Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University (SLCU) is helping to explain why ‘twin’ plants, with identical genes, grown in identical environments continue to display unique characteristics all of their own.
