The confocal core has been fused with the Shimon Weiss core in the CNSI.
The Carol Moss Spivak Cell Imaging Facility is a service of the UCLA Brain Research Institute for the implementation of biological confocal and 2-photon laser-scanning microscopy and some associated technologies. The Facility has a new Leica TCS SP MP Inverted Confocal and 2-Photon Laser-Scanning Microscope, a new Leica TCS SP MP Fixed-Stage Upright Confocal and 2-Photon Laser-Scanning Microscope and a Carl Zeiss LSM 310 laser-scanning confocal microscope, PC and Macintosh computers for image processing and a dye sublimation printer and a film graphics recorder for confocal data output. Some basic equipment is available for physiological experiments involving confocal and 2-photon scanning. These include an Axon Instruments Axopatch 200B Patch Amplifier, a Burleigh micromanipulator, and a Hammamatsu video camera for IR-DIC imaging.
