OPTICAL MICROSCOPY

LSM710 Confocal Microscope Training

The BX61is a fully integrated upright microscope for advanced materials science applications, featuring on-board motorized functions and autofocus options. It has Brightfield Transmitted, Brightfield Reflected, and Polarized Reflected illumi- nation and is suitable for metallurgical or material studies.

Confocal microscopy is broadly used to resolve the detailed structure of specif- ic objects within the cell. Similar to widefield fluorescence microscopy, various components of living and fixed cells or tissue sections can be specifically labeled using immunofluorescence, for example, and then visualized in high resolution. As a distinctive feature, confocal microscopy enables the creation of sharp im- ages of the exact plane of focus, without any disturbing fluorescent light from the background or other regions of the specimen. Therefore, structures within thicker objects can be conveniently visualized using confocal microscopy. Furthermore, by stacking several images from different optical planes, 3D structures can be analyzed.
