World's first commercially available Multiphoton system at Brain and Mind Centre
This custom built Leica SP8 DIVE multiphoton system is up and running. Its special multiphoton lasers peer deep into the tissue of live animals, providing researchers with a view of biological or pathological processes as they occur. It uses 3 nano-second pulsed tuneable lasers which can illuminate up to 8 fluorophores simultaneously, providing exceptionally fast imaging. This tool will help researchers with longitudinal investigations into diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
