Optical Imaging Facility:  

The Optical Imaging part of the Core Facility includes a high performance Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopes, one Laser Capture Microdissection system and one in-vivo optical imaging instrument, IVIS.

Microscope location: J. B. Winsløws Vej 21 ground floor East, room 0.56.

IVIS location: J. B. Winsløws Vej 23, room 0.34.  


Olympus FV1000MPE, Upright Single- and Multiphoton Fluorescence Microscope


Excitation lasers: 405, 458, 488, 515, 559, 635, and a MaiTai DeepSee Titanium-sapphire laser (690-1040nm), which allows for imaging of structures at depths up to 1.1mm.  

The Microscope includes the following options:  
Multiphoton excitation allows for investigations on thick living tissue specimens that would not otherwise be possible with conventional imaging techniques.

Simultaneous Laser Light Stimulation and Imaging for a variety of applications, including FRAP, FLIP, photo-activation, photo-conversion, uncaging, laser ablation and many others.    

Differential Interference Contrast revealing the topographical profile of the specimen.    



 IVIS Spectrum, pre-clinical Optical Imaging (in vivo imaging system)  


The IVIS uses an optical imaging technology to facilitate non-invasive longitudinal monitoring of disease progression, cell-trafficking and gene-expression patterns in live animals. You have the advantage of bioluminescent and fluorescent reports across the blue to near infrared wavelength region. Also single-view 3D-tomography is provided.



Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM), Olympus MMI CellCut 

LCM is typically used to isolate ROIs (regions of interest) from tissue or single cells for further cloning, re-cultivation, manipulation or downstream analysis.

We deeply appreciate for Trevor Owens hereby providing  us with this instrument.



Software and Data Analysis Workstations:

The FV1000MPE employ PC-based FV-ASW Olympus software.  It also employs a Bitplane IMARIS software.

Data analysis workstation (PC), accessing shared Network server, are available for data processing.
