True confocal scanning microscopy uses a pinpoint light source in the form of a laser to illuminate samples, a small section at a time. A scanner then drives the laser over the sample, generating an image. Exciting samples in this way produces less out of focus light than wide-field microscopy giving higher resolution images. We have a variety of objectives and 8 visible laser lines, allowing for a wide range of samples to be imaged. Confocal microscopy gives high resolution 3D images and sequences; This system has a multiphoton laser which is capable of penetrating up to 700um deep, enabling us to look deep into tissue samples. The resonant scanner allows us to capture high speed events such as waves of molecules moving through cells.
