Properties

  1. Resource Description
    "The TE2000-E wide-field microscope is equipped for diverse imaging: * Motorized z-focusing motor enables collection of in focus images in different image planes. This utility is most often used in acquiring images for deconvolution and Stereolgy. * It has a xenon lamp for fluorescence excitation provides an excellent light source for calcium imaging with Fura-2 and UV-Vis fluorophores. * A very sensitive CoolSNAP HQ2 camera is ideal for fluorescence imaging, as it produces very little noise and allows for faster integration times. * A 5 mega pixel color camera is available for non-fluorescent samples and is ideal for histological stains. * There are 4x and 10x phase lenses available as well as high NA 20x, 40x, 60x, and 100x DIC lenses. * A computer controlled excitation filter wheel allows for fast, automated collection of images. * Filter sets are available for UV, blue, green, and red excitation and emitted light is collected with the corresponding band pass or long pass emission filters. * Filter sets are available for calcium ratio imaging, specifically fura-2 AM. * A motorized stage in conjuction with Nikon NIS Elements or Stereologer software allows for the collection of images in multiple, specified locations. * Nikon NIS Elements Advanced Research imaging software is cable of 6 dimensions (6D) of acquisition. Up to six combinations of wavelength, time, x-, y-, and/or z-positions are possible to control with this software."
