State of the art true confocal system, equipped with 4 lasers (Diode, Argon, DPSS, Helium/Neon) giving 8 excitation lines (405, 458, 476, 488, 496, 514, 561, 633 nm), conventional and resonant scanner for fast acquisition speed, acousto-optical beam splitter (AOBS) for better transmission of the emitted light, acousto-optical tunable filter (AOTF) for fine control of laser power, 3 photomultipliers (PMTs) with spectral detectors for free choice of the emission window and one hybrid detector (hyD) for optimal signal-to-noise ratio acquisition in the red emission region, 5 objectives (10x, 20x, 40x and two 63x) including one 63x water immersion objective for imaging of living samples, temperature, humidity and CO2 control. The confocal microscope is housed in a biosafety level II laboratory room equipped with one biosafety level II hood, one cell culture incubator, fridge, freezer, one small fume hood, one system producing type III deionized water.
