A Leica SP2 inverted confocal microscope with a wide range of excitation lasers. The Leica SP2 uses variable spectral detection system instead of traditional emission filters.
The system has a limited number of laser lines for excitation and the dyes are limited by these. Any dye that is excited at one of these following wavelengths can be used: 405; 458; 476; 488; 514; 543; and 633 nm (check online or ask Bertrand if you are not sure which dye to use).
For multiphoton, a Spectra Physics Saphire Laser is used.
Filter cubes for DAPI, FITC and TRITC are installed for standard fluorescence viewing prior to scanning. Transmitted light illumination is also available.
