The Aperio ScanScope FL scanner is a fluorescence microscope that is used to digitalise traditional fluorescently labelled specimens, mounted on a glass slide, through a high-quality scanning process and produces, able to scan large areas. With 20X magnification you can select from up to 4 fluorescent colours (Blue, Green, red, far-red). All slides must be labelled with DAPI or Hoechst nuclear stain for calibration and focusing purposes.
The FV1200 is a filter based upright confocal system. A workhorse of our confocal systems it is well equipped for standard fixed samples where high resolution and sensitivity are required for localization based studies. Additionally as one of the few upright confocal systems within the BMIF it provides a means for visualizing water submerged opaque samples.
The Nikon Eclipse TiE is ideally suited for live cell imaging studies. With one of the best focus stabilisation devices on the market the Perfect Focus System (PFS) ensures that the focus you set at the start of the experiment will be maintained throughout its entirety. They system is fitted with several phase contrast objects making it suitable for imaging cells through a range of materials including plastic, as well as 3 high NA DIC objects for achieving astounding detail if imaging through glass.
The Aperio ScanScope XT scanner is a brightfield microscope that is used to digitalise traditional histochemicaly stained tissues mounted on a microscope slides. You can choose between 20X and 40X magnification and scan any required size of the tissue. The digital slides are viewed and analysed using Aperio software applications (ImageScope). The image format is .svs which is a form of a tiff file, that can be converted into JPEG2000 for faster processing and presentation. The Aperio XT scanner can autoload up to 120 glass slides (1x3") as well as manually scan your slides one by one if required.
