Kroto Research Institute Confocal and Two-Photon Imaging Facility

This facility is located within the Kroto Research Institute and is part of the instrumentation available for Imaging and Analysis within the Centre for Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering.

The facility contains two Zeiss LSM510 Meta confocal microscopes which can be booked and operated independently of each other. Both microscopes have their own set of lasers and both can also be connected to a tuneable two-photon Ti-Sapphire laser.

There is also a Leica inverted epifluorescent microscope with an environmental chamber and camera.

This open access facility is available for use by researchers based in the Kroto Institute, other users from within Sheffield University and external researchers from both academia and industry. For further details on the theory behind confocal imaging, the facilities available, how to book the facilities or register as a new user please see the Kroto Confocal Imaging Facility website.
