Facilities and tools

Laser Microsurgery Equipment

The set-up used for laser microsurgery is designed to ablate intra-cellular structures at the sub-micron level. We use an infinity-conjugated Nikon Eclipse TE2000-U microscope with a ‘stage-up kit’ and an extra filter turret added in the plane-wave region of the microscope (between the objective and the tube lens), which allows the injection of external, collimated, light beams into the microscope’s light path.
