BioImaging

At iMed.ULisboa there are several resources available for bioimage acquisition.

Both fluorescence and bright-field microscopes (Zeiss) with dedicated cameras (Leica) and imaging and acquisition systems are available within the Cell Culture facility.

The Leica TCS SP8 laser scanning confocal microscope is a new resource at iMed.ULisboa for fluorescence imaging. The inverted DMi8 fluorescence microscope is equipped with a fully motorized stage, fast z movement (Leica Super Z Galvo stage), 4 solid state lasers (405, 488, 552, 638 nm), four detectors (one HyD high-sensitivity, three PMT), a transmitted light detector with CCD camera, three dry objectives (5x, 10x and 20x) and two oil immersion objectives (40x and 63x), and allows several types of image acquisition (2D, z-stack and time-lapse).

Available for iMed.ULisboa researchers.
