Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope with Optical Trapping


The main equipment consists of Zeiss AxioObserver Z1 inverted research microscope and Zeiss LSM710 confocal scan head. Currently, we have Plan Apochromat 20X/0.80NA, 63X/1.40NA objectives with DIC accessories and 1.4 mega pixel CCD camera. The microscope has the following excitation lasers:

  • Multiline Argon 458/488/514 nm - 25mW

  • HeNe 543 nm - 1.2mW

  • HeNe 633 nm - 5mW

  • Diode 405nm - 30mW

In addition, we are in the process of acquiring an optical trapping system with 1064nm trap laser from Elliott Scientific. The trapping system will be integrated with the microscope. The expected date of the installation of the trapping unit is December 2015.
