    Confocal microscopes


    Abberior STED Microscope

    This super-resolution Abberior STED/RESOLFT is a sophisticated, highly flexible open platform that can be modified, extended and upgraded at any given time. In its current configuration the system is equipped with two pulsed excitation lasers (488, 640nm) and two pulsed STED lasers for depletion (580, 775nm) allowing super-resolution in two different colors. A third color option is soon to be included with a 532 nm that is currently in place. At this moment its typical resolution in X and Y axis is ~25-30nm with super-resolution for the Z axis to be introduced in the very near future thanks to the Abberior Instruments Easy3D STED module that we are acquiring. This module uses a programmable spatial light modulator (SLM) to create phase patterns required for 2D and 3D STED microscopy and at the same time, it can also be used to correct for optical aberrations. Easy3D with adaptive optics will also enable deep imaging with penetration up to 80 µm into cleared tissue using an oil objective. Without adaptive optics, the mismatch between immersion oil and sample will lead to complete signal loss.

    Another key module currently available in our STED system is the imaging mode called RESCue (Reduction of state Transition Cycles) STED that reduces the light dose sent onto the samples without compromising resolution. Thanks to RESCue STED and upcoming software to control the existing live cell chamber, the Abberior STED at BioPhysics will be capable of doing live-cell super-resolution STED imaging.

    MSquared Aurora Airy beam Light Sheet

    The Aurora Airy beam light sheet microscope is a ground-breaking approach to light sheet microscopy that allows imaging of large or small volume specimens over long periods of time with minimal photo-bleaching effects. It has been designed as a compact and modular instrument, to address a range of applications and variety of budgets to suit your research needs. Aurora utilizes an Airy beam to create the light sheet, which produces a field of view 20 times larger than the Gaussian beam (600 µm with a 20x detection objective) and 8 times larger than the Bessel10 beam, whilst still maintaining a sub 1 µm axial resolution comparable to that of the Gaussian and twice as good as the Bessel101.
    The Airy beam’s characteristic asymmetric excitation pattern creates lobes spreading the beam, lowering the overall light exposure to the sample resulting in 80% less photo-bleaching in comparison to the Gaussian beam. Furthermore, it only requires a single exposure per z slice compared to the multiple acquisitions required for some Bessel beam approaches which induce a higher photo-toxic effect.
    The inherent properties of the beam further contribute to the signal, deconvolution regains the spread lobes producing at least a 10 times improvement in signal to noise, enabling users to image live samples for longer over a larger field of view with minimized photo-damage. Due to the self-healing, non-linear, and non-diffractive propagation of the Airy beam it means that shadowing and striping, as observed in conventional Gaussian based systems, are not present allowing users to image a wider range of specimens in their natural state.

    Microscope objective combination
    Excitation and detection objectives designed by Special Optics for dipping media where Refractive Indices (RI) range from 1.33 to 1.56 (NA 0.37-0.43), but will also work in air.

    Lambert-FLIM


    Fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy, FLIM, is a technique for producing an image based on the   differences in the exponential decay rate (lifetime) of the fluorescent molecule.

    FLIM is an easy and fast application to image FRET as the lifetime of the donor decreases upon FRET. CFP-YFP and GFP-DsRed pairs have been successfully used.

    Our Lambert Instruments LIFA is a fast frequency domain FLIM system, which is attached to an inverted Carl Zeiss AxioImager microscope body. With this system we can image only fixed samples in widefield mode. The light source is multi-LED with excitation lines 406, 469 and 533nm. With the LIFA system we can image lifetimes with a resolution < 100 ps in a range of  0.1 ns – 1 ms.

    The system is equipped with high-content imaging possibility.

    For basic information, please read ‘Fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy: spatial resolution of biochemical processes in the cell’ by Bastiaens and Squire. (Trends Cell Biol. 1999 Feb;9(2):48-52.)

    In case of needs for FLIM in confocal resolution or with a live cell sample, we can apply an access to Leica SP5 STED imaging platform to perform time domain FLIM.


    Zeiss TIRF microscope


    Total Internal Reflection microscopy (TIRFM) is a technique, which allows imaging of fluorophores near of the basal cell membrane with high resolution in Z-axis. Approximately 70-150 nm axial resolution can be achieved, while in common confocal microscopy the limit is approximately 600nm.

    TIRFM is designed for cell membrane studies, such as endosytosis and integrin trafficking. However,  it is very suitable for all kind of sensitive wide field microscopy, due to high quality objectives and sensitive cameras.

    Our TIRF has two different cameras dedicated to different applications: a very sensitive emccd camera with a 512×512 chip, and a sensitive and fast high resolution sCMOS camera. The microscope is equipped with incubation elements, motorized stage and Zeiss Definite Focus drift correction device.
