Stereo Microscope

Brand: Nikon

Model: SMZ25

Nikon's SMZ25 stereomicroscope combines macro and micro imaging in one instrument for convenient viewing and manipulation of single cells to whole organisms. Using Nikon's Perfect Zoom System optical technology, the SMZ25 achieves the world's first 25:1 zoom and high NA for superior resolution never before seen with a stereomicroscope.

The instrument is used in the Neuron-studies for GFP-hydra. The instrument is also midified with Hammamatsu High-Speed camera.

ORCA-Flash4.0 V2 Digital CMOS camera

Scientific breakthroughs rarely come from giant steps. Rather, it's a continuous progression of small steps and astute application of those differences that enables advances. The ORCA-Flash4.0 V2 is the perfect examples of this process. From its introduction the ORCA-Flash4.0 has challenged the status quo of imaging and undergone a series of useful enhancements. The most recent is perhaps the most exciting; a notable increase in the ability to detect photons. This enhanced QE means that you have a possibility of detecting the faintest of signals.

The high sensitivity for this instrument aids the work of neuron  signal detection.
