The Advanced Light Microscopy provides equipment and software for the acquisition, processing and analysis of light-captured images. The confocal suite is equipped with two scanning confocal microscopes (Nikon A1 and C1), one of which currently being upgraded with a Structured illumination microscopy (SIM) module for super resolution studies. Live cells can be imaged with an on-stage incubation system. The Center is also equipped with IncuCyte System for automatic live time-lapse acquisition and analyses of fluorescence and phase contrast images in high-content modality. Moreover, there is a number of large wide-field microscope systems which are dedicated to CCD camera acquisition of fluorescence and bright field images.
Spectroscopy studies are performed with a high pressure spectrofluorometer, a single photon counting as well as a Jasco CD. The equipment is used by all TOR research groups and external collaborators
