Zeiss 880 Ariyscan
The Zeiss 880 confocal is an inverted microscope equipped with Airyscan ‘super-resolution detector’. In addition the system is fitted with z-peizo, definite focus, fast-Airyscan module and an environmental chamber for super-resolution live cell imaging. The motorized stage can be used for image stitching of large samples and time-lapse imaging at multiple positions.
- Imaging fixed tissue culture cells tissue sections labelled with 3 or 4 fluorophores for cellular architecture, localisation or co-localisation studies at resolution beyond that achievable with standard confocal microscopes.
- Fast imaging in XY and Z dimensions
- Environmental chamber for time-lapse imaging at 37oC with 5% CO2 (possible at super-resolution).
- Programmable stage for imaging larger structures such as organ slices, or multiple points on a slide.
- Zeiss 880 Laser Scanning Microscope fitted with Airyscan detector
- Incubator system for live-cell imaging and temperature control
- 6 laser lines
- Freely selectable ROI for laser scanning, bleaching and photoactivation
- xy, xz, xyz, xyzt, lambda, line scan and spot scan modes
- DIC optics
- Peizo stage insert
- Definite focus
