Multiphoton (2-photon) Microscopy
The Multiphoton Intravital Microscope is located within Lab G.069.
Multiphoton Microscopy sees deeper into live tissue (incubation for in vitro slices also available) and is less phototoxic than pinhole-based confocal microscopy. To make use of this technology, contact Bob Fleming in the first instance.
