The Patterson Microscopy Center is a University of Texas User Facility offering confocal and multiphoton microscopy, restricted to Texas University users.
The Center operates a Leica TCS SP5 II Fixed Stage (Upright) Microscope
This microscope was configured to enable imaging of multiple fluorophores in a single specimen.
Detectors and imaging of different fluorophores
This microscope is equipped with 3 photodetectors (PMTs) for reflected light (fluorescence) and a 4th PMT for transmitted light. The reflected light PMTs are located behind a prism/mirror system that allows precise, tunable determination of the wavelengths allowed to reach each detector. This enables one to minimize overlap in emissions of different fluorophores while maximizing the detection of each.
The Center operates a Leica TCS SP5 FS Fixed stage, Upright microscope
This microscope was configured to enable high sensitivity vital imaging.
