Our Hitachi H-600 TEM is equipped with a SIA L12C (16 mp) imaging system with MaxIm DL 5 image capture and optimization software. A good resource for copper grids can be found on the Electron Microscopy Sciences website.
Our Nikon Eclipse E-600 LM is outfitted with standard brightfield visualization, epifluorescence filter sets (UV-2B (ex 353, em 435), UV-2E/C (a.k.a. DAPI - ex 358, em 461), BFP (ex 380, em 440), GFP (ex 470, em 525), YFP (ex 500, em 535), TRITC HYQ (ex 545, em 620)), differential interference contrast (DIC, a.k.a. Nomarski optics), phase contrast, 1X, 4X, 10X, 40x, and 100x (oil) Plan Fluor, and 60X Plan Apo objectives, and two imaging systems: Nikon DS-Fi1c color digital camera system with Nikon NIS-Elements image capture and optimization software and Hamamatsu ORCA-ER high-sensitivity monochrome digital CCD camera with HCImage Live image capture and optimization software.
Please note: Dr. Linda Yasui is solely responsible for the management of the new Zeiss LSM 900 Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope with Airyscan 2. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions about operations, specifications or scheduling time on this microscope.
