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)

Cells in tight spaces – how the cytoskeleton responds to different cell geometries

Jul 09, 2020

Inside every living cell, there is a network of protein filaments providing an interior scaffold controlling the cell’s shape called the cytoskeleton. Research from the Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University (SLCU) suggests that this relationship might actually be two-way, with cell geometry itself having the capacity to influence the organisation of the cytoskeleton in living plant cells.
