Confocal Microscopy

Confocal microscopy is able to simultaneously observe the interactions of biological objects with controlled surfaces and the structuring of these surfaces up to the sub-micron level.

Description

Areas of activity :
Confocal microscopy observes and characterizes the interaction of biological objects with controlled surfaces, it also allows topographic characterization at micron and sub-micron level. This in particular leads on to studies in the cellular behaviour in the vicinity of physically or chemically structured surfaces.  

Main equipment (strengths of the Institute) :
The confocal microscopy platform is equipped with a Zeiss Axio Imager M2 LSM 700 confocal right microscope controlled by ZEN 2012 software.
