Dementia Research Institute
Our Dementia Research Institute houses state-of-the-art fluorescence microscopy systems.
Researchers can perform detailed studies of samples using spinning disc and laser-scanning confocals in addition to conducting large-scale screening approaches using a robot-assisted high-content screening platform.
Dedicated data-handling infrastructure and analysis software provides researchers with the tools to interrogate and analyse image data.
|High-content fluorescence imaging platform||Perkin Elmer Opera Phenix||Automated, high-content fluorescence imaging system with widefield and confocal capabilities. High-NA water immersion objectives give high resolution and maximise photon harvest. sCMOS cameras provide a large field of view and the system features environmental control for live cell imaging.|
|Laser scanning confocal||Leica SP8||Laser scanning confocal microscope for high quality fluorescence imaging. Hybrid detectors and prism-based spectral optics enhance sensitivity.|
|Spinning disc confocal||Zeiss Cell Observer SD.||A Yokagawa spinning disc head fitted to a Zeiss Examiner upright stand allows rapid and sensitive fluorescence imaging with optical sectioning and high image quality.|
|Single cell analysis system||TaKaRa ICELL8 cx Single-Cell System.||Single cell system for the rapid isolation and analysis of large numbers of single cells.|
