SP8 multi-photon: Leica TCS SP8 MP laser scanning confocal microscope with multi-photon illumination

Laser scanning confocal microscope (Leica TCS SP8) on an upright stand, motorized stage that can accommodate large samples (Scientifica). Resonant scanner (8 Hz) for fast scan times and lower photo-toxicity or bleaching. Pulsed infrared laser for multi-photon excitation with two lines: tuneable 700-1300 nm, and fixed 1040 nm (INSight DS+ DUAL). Four external, non-descanned detectors (two HyD high-sensitivity, two PMT), three internal detectors (one HyD high-sensitivity, two PMT) with spectral detection, one transmitted light detector (PMT). Full enclosure to protect from stray light interference.
