Multiphoton Microscope - Zeiss LSM 510Meta/Multiphoton NLO

Example of data produced by the Multiphoton Microscope - Zeiss LSM


The Zeiss LSM NLO multiphoton microscope is equipped with a 25mW Argon laser (458, 477, 488, & 514nm), a 1mW green (543nm) and a 5mW red (633nm) HeNe laser, and a Ti;sapphire laser (Coherent Chameleon) tunable between 720-950nm.

The multiphoton is ideal for imaging very thick fluorescently labeled specimens with less photobleaching and attenuation than conventional confocal. Many live specimens can be imaged without causing damage.

In addition, the multiphoton is configured for second harmonic generation and confocal reflectance.
