January 2018: demonstration of the new confocal microscope A1 R+ (Nikon).
Availability of the microscope at the facility: two weeks
November 2017: demonstration of the new confocal microscope LSM880 fast Airy scan (Zeiss).
Availability of the microscope at the facility: one week
November 2017: organisation on our site of a symposium of one day on ‘Sample Preparation for microscopy: from single protein to model organisms and organs’,
in the frame of the working group ‘Sample Preparation’ of the microscopy network rtmfm of CNRS.
September 2017: the facility tests clearing protocoles at tissues, organes and model organismes.
Soon a new service to be proposed at the facility.
Fevrier 2017: Installation SBF-SEM TeneoVS
Le nouveau microscope électronique à balayage couplé à un système d'ultramicrotomie (Serial Block Face imaging) a été installé sur la plateforme
February 2017: new Camera installed on the spinning disk CSU X1.
The sCMOS Prime 95B, with quantum efficiency of 95% !!
December 2016: new objective with long working distance
for thick and transparent samples on the multi-photon microscope (Olympus 10x, NA 1, WD 8mm)
October 2016: new workstation (station de travail 3)
16 cores CPU, 196Gb RAM, for even higher performances for image processing.
Michael Lang, using the recently installed spinning disk CSU W1, is among the 2 first winners of the FBI image contest 2016.
June 2016: Installation of a second sCMOS camera on the CSU W1 spinning disk microscope.
With 2 sCMOS Flash4 cameras, the microscope is ideal for 2 color simultaneous imaging of live samples.
Equipped with a X1 he’d and one EMCCD and one CCD CoolSnap camera, on a Zeiss AxioObserver body and a FRAP module, the microscope is well suited for live imaging.
Equipped with a W1 head and sCMOS camera, the new spinning disk Andor-Leica microscope is well suited for deeper imaging and with a wide field of view.
The NFX50-900 is a new quality reference, adapted to scientific service and R&D infrastructures, adding the management aspect.
Demonstration of the IncuCyte ZOOM system. The period 19-29 January the system will be hosted at the facility. System dedicated to live cell imaging (proliferation, toxicity, apoptosis, migration, etc).
The practical part of the super-resolution workshop INSERM took place at our facility (4-5 November). 2 days of training on the SIM/ 3D PALM and dSTORM techniques. Interactions with participants - test samples. To repeat!!
