The Department of Food Chemistry and Toxicology is equipped with the Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope from Zeiss 710 including the ELYRA system PS.1 for super-resolution. The LSM 710 allows the acquisition of 4 colors confocal images, SR-SIM images (also in 3D) and PALM images. The microscope is completed with temperature/CO2-controlled incubator for live cell imaging. Moreover, an additional set-up dedicated to image analysis is available to ensure a regular workflow.

Available Objectives:

Alpha Plan-Apochromat 100x/1.46 Oil DIC M27 Elyra

Plan-Apochromat 63x/1.4 Oil DIC M27

Water Plan-Apochromat 63x/1.0

In addition to confocal microscopy, the Department of Food Chemistry and Toxicology is also equipped with the Cytation 3 modularer Multi-Detektions-Reader for Cell Imaging. This instrument combines microplate detection to automated digital microscopy and allows the acquisition of brightfield images, as well as fluorescence with 20x magnification (detectable fluorophores DAPI, CFP, GFP, YFP, RFP, Texas Red, CY5, CY7).
