The mission of the Hawai‘i Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB) is to conduct multi-disciplinary research and education in all aspects of tropical marine biology. HIMB continues to be a world leader in research to understand and conserve tropical marine ecosystems. We develop and implement new technologies that advance the informed stewardship of Hawaii’s marine and coastal biodiversity.
The HIMB Zeiss LSM710 laser-scanning confocal microscope has the following capabilities:
-High-resolution images of fluorescent specimens
-Live cell imaging of relatively thick samples (up to approx. 100 µM)
-6 excitation wavelengths (lasers: 405, 458, 488, 514, 561 and 633 nm)
-Motorized stage capable of tiling, multi-point mark, and find memory function.
-Precise temperature and CO2 control (environmental chamber and full stage incubator)

The purchase of the Zeiss LSM 710 confocal microscope for HIMB was made possible by a generous donation from Pam Omidyar (financing provided through the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology).
The Zeiss LSM 710 Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope system has a multitude of functions for fluorescent imaging and analysis. Some of the features of this system include the following:
Spectral imaging for the separation of overlapping emission spectra of specimens labeled with more than one fluorescent dye or expressing more than one innate fluorescent protein.
