Zeiss Axio Zoom.V16

Developmental Genetics group in Skirball Institute has installed a new Zeiss stereo microscope, the Axio Zoom. V16, and is sharing time with Microscopy Core users.

This is a motorized fluorescent macro- to microscope with high numerical aperture macro lenses, an AxioCam 506 monochrome CCD camera, and Zeiss software standard across its microscope platforms. The system provides users with bright and sharp fluorescent images in large fields and at high resolution. More information available at the Zeiss website.

Please contact Microscopy Core for further information about this microscope.

Nikon TIRF/Epi-Fluorescent Microscope

We are happy to introduce Nikon TIRF/Epi-fluorescent microscope to NYULMC investigators. The TIRF (Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence) system was donated by Dr. Michael Dustin and recently upgraded for high resolution widefield.  TIRF provides imaging of a 100 to 200 nm thin Z plane immediately at the glass coverslip substrate. Also, this is a fully automated traditional epi-fluorescence microscope with a mechanical stage for mosaics of large stained tissues at high resolution or for multi-field timelapse of live cells with focus locking and an environmental chamber.  Objective lenses range from 10X to 100X with an ultra-sensitive Andor iXon EMCCD usable for single molecule work and an Andor Zyla sCMOS for a large field of view.
