A New Nikon C2+ Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope (CLSM) Has Arrived At CAM.

A new Nikon C2+ confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM) has arrived at CAM.  The new microscope will be used for teaching the NSC-837 class (Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy Lab) and for research.  The new microscope has the upright configuration that is useful in the examination of stained sections and certain materials science samples.  In addition, it has three photomultiplier (PMT) detectors, four lasers, a color camera, and uses filter cubes rather than filter wheels.  The microscope is currently undergoing installation and testing which will be followed by operator training.  It is anticipated the microscope will be available for users by Sept. 2.  The new Nikon C2+ will replace the Zeiss Pascal CLSM that has been at CAM for the last 14 years.
