The microscopes are open to users around campus. We can provide assisted imaging sessions, or for longer term projects, training. Contact facility staff for assistance.

Zeiss LSM 780 NLO Confocal Microscope System (ALS 2070)

Zeiss LSM 780 NLO Confocal Microscope

An NSF Shared Instrumentation Grant supplemented by the OSU Research Office provided funding for the Zeiss LSM 780 NLO Confocal Microscope. The inverted microscope can generate either confocal images with the 32-channel internal GaAsP detector and two high sensitive internal PMTs, or multi-photon images with the internal detectors or to two GaAsP non-descanned detectors (NDD).

Zeiss LSM 510 Meta Confocal Microscope System (ALS 3131) - decomissioned

Zeiss LSM 510 Meta Confocal Microscope

An NIH Shared Instrumentation Grant supplemented by the OSU Research Office provided funding for the Zeiss LSM 510 Meta. The system has been decommissioned  and converted to a widefield/epifluorescent.

Axiovert 200 M Microscope  (ALS 3131)

This is a widefield / epifluorescent microscope with an AxioCam MRm Rev.3 (firewire) camera and an X-Cite 120 LED System.

Microscope Analysis Workstation (ALS 3131)

An imaging analysis workstation is available for use with an extra copy of the ZEN software.

Zeiss PALM MicroBeam IV Laser Capture System

The Laser Capture Microdissection System is operated in cooperation with the Environmental Health Sciences Center (EHSC) and the Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing (CGRB). An NIH Shared Instrumentation Grant supplemented by the OSU Research Office provided funding for the Zeiss PALM MicroBeam IV Laser Capture System. The facility is open to users around campus. We can provide assisted LCM sessions, or for longer term projects, training. The microscope is also available as a fluorescent or brightfield microscope for assisted sessions or training.
