Confocal Microscope

Nikon High Definition Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope

Location: Hopper Science Room G13

The Nikon High Definition Resonant Scanning Confocal A1rHD looks at fluorescently stained materials and can localize cell components or other areas of interest on biological samples. For example, the confocal can look at live anesthetized tiny fish embryos and make a movie of the heart beating
and the valves opening and closing. It can also help assess the properties of various materials.
