  2. Resource Description
    "Using the Nikon TE300 inverted microscope in room 287 with its ImagePro workstation, 5D time-lapse studies of cells grown in culture can be accomplished (X, Y, time, wavelength and location). Imaging combinations using phase contrast and fluorescence illumination are possible, taken at short or long intervals, from several minutes to several days. The environmental chamber has temperature and CO2 control and is monitored continuously. Cells are normally presented in multi-well plates or 35mm glass-bottom dishes, but other vessels can be accommodated as needed. Common uses for this system include scratch (wound) assays and cellular proliferation studies. For higher resolution options, including 3D timelapse, The Leica SP5 II confocal microscope (see below) is also capable of multi-day timelapse, with CO2 and temperature control."
