Biology laboratory and microscopy facility for biological real time and high resolution imaging.
The group shares its equipment with the CRANN Nanobiology group. As part of this collaboration the group has access to a fully equipped Type II Biology laboratory with adjacent cell culture room and living cell microscopy area.
The group contributed to the overall microscopy facility with an Olympus CX31 inverted microscope with attached UV source, high resolution camera controlled by dedicated software for real time imaging and fast acquisition. The system is equipped with large field and high resolution objective lenses for sub-cellular imaging (Magnifications = x4, x10, x20, x40, x100). Software: ImagePro Plus and Fast grabber.
