Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope with Multiphoton System
Due to the high resolution images and 3-D reconstructions in confocal laser scanning microscopy, it is widely used in numerous biological science disciplines, from cell biology and genetics to microbiology and developmental biology. CLSM is broadly used in neuroanatomy and neurophysiology studies, as well as morphological studies of cells and tissues; besides, the growing use of new fluorescent proteins coupling this modern microscopic research and cell biology research.
Other applications include resonance energy transfer, stem cell research, photobleaching studies, lifetime imaging, multiphoton microscopy, total internal reflection, DNA hybridization, membrane and ion probes, bioluminescent proteins, and epitope tagging.
Extracellular Flux Analyzer
Seahorse XF Analyzers measure oxygen consumption rate (OCR) and extracellular acidification rate (ECAR) of live cells in a multi-well plate, interrogating key cellular functions such as mitochondrial respiration and glycolysis. XF Analyzers perform compound addition and mixing, label-free analytical detection, and automatic measurement of OCR and ECAR in real time.
