Stereo Microscopy

The Stereo Microscopy Facility supports the care and use of microscopy instrumentation for stereo imaging of cells, tissues, and organs. GFP-transgenic, and other fluorescently labeled cells and tissues, can be viewed, manipulated, and imaged using these instruments.

Leadership

The Stereomicroscopy Facility is directed by Victor L. Perez, MD, Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology.

Location

The Stereomicroscopy Facility is located on the 6th floor of the McKnight building, room 606A

Equipment

  • Zeiss Stemi SV11 Fluorescence Stereo Microscope
  • AxioCam Mrc Camera

This microscope is equipped with 1.6x high optical quality lenses to provide wide-field stereoscopic image. H-50 arc lamp provides adequate source of light to illuminate fluorescence-labeled samples. Two different excitation/ emission (DAPI, FITC) filter pairs allow multiple fluorophores to be visualized and/or captured by the digital camera.

  • Axiostar Plus Upright Fluorescence Microscope
  • AxioCam Mrc Camera

This microscope is equipped with 5x, 10x, 20x, and 40x objectives. Three different excitation/ emission (DAPI, FITC, CY3) filter pairs allow multiple fluorophores to be visualized and/or captured by the digital camera.
