An additional inverted fluorescence confocal microscope is needed in order to manage the huge demand of users at CFIM for imaging their samples. It will enable us to image cells and tissues under natural conditions with an environmental control. It will be equipped with the Airyscan detector, which allows us to image with lower light intensity and higher resolution, which is essential for many of the projects/applications.
CFIM also has a need for a new stereo/zoom microscope which can acquire both overview images as well as more detailed images for both Brightfield and Fluorescence. The zoom microscope will be equipped with the ApoTome, which allows for optical sectioning.
