Bruker Ultima IntraVital

Custom up-right Bruker confocal microscope, specifically designed for live animal imaging and stain-free tissue imaging. The systems is linked to two ChameleonDiscovery TPC titanium:sapphire lasers (tuneable range 680–1300nm, and fixed 1040nm ) and equipped with  gated GaAsP photon detectors.
