The OBC newly acquired Leica TCS SP8 confocal has been designed for confocal microscopy with optimal photon efficiency and high speed. This new system has 4 detectors (2 GaAsP and 2 PMT), 6 laser lines (405, 458, 488, 514, 568, and 633) and a motorized stage. There is no incubator or 2-photon on this confocal. There is a 10x air objective, 20x multi-immersion objective, and 63x oil objective with a very large field of view (comparable to 40x).
Recharge rates: $20/hour during peak hours, $10/hour during off-peak hours
