The CBIA Core offers access to a variety of confocal microscope systems for high resolution optical sectioning and 3D imaging of samples.

In addition to standard Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope (LSCM) the CBIA Core is home to one Quorum Spinning disk fitted with a CCD and an EMCCD cameras for high speed and high sensitivity imaging needs. In addition our spinning disk has 3D D-STORM capabilities for the highest super-resolution imaging. Lately installed the state-of-the-art confocal microscope, the Zeiss LSM880 equipped with AiryScan FAST technology, to acquire super-resolution images faster than never before!
