  • Remarkable destruction of a 100x objective
    The wide field imaging system for histology and fluorescence was found with a broken Olympus 100x lens last week. It must have been a terrible noise to crack the top lens, please come forward if this happened during your session, we can offer mental support. We would like to prevent this so please let us…
  • Live cell Spinning disk microscope is operational
    After extensive testing we have a new microscopy setup at the CCI. It is a spinning disk automated microscope from Olympus (now Evident) that has the possibility to image fast, sensitive and at different imaging modes (wide field, confocal, bright field and in an Enhanced resolution mode -SoRa). Our intention is to replace the outdated…
  • Please fill in the survey you were sent by us.
    We want to know your experience at the CCI and would like to know what you  need in the future to do imaging at the FVM. Please help us by filling in the survey you have been sent via the mail.
  • DEMO Microscopes from 17th-22nd of May
    We are testing different microscopes to replace the Leica SPE2 “workhorse” that is having frequent technical failures and is heavily overbooked nowadays. Our aim is to increase the imaging capacity at the CCI by improving the workflow to do your imaging. We sent a mail with a request to give us samples you would like…
  • Leica SPE2 40x HCX oil objective defect
    The 40x oil on the Leica SPE-II CLSM showed severe chromatic aberration in Z for UV fluorescence. The objective is removed from the system and its aberration is being validated on another Leica machine in the UU campus. We probably need to repair or replace it. Our objectives are very costly and vulnerable, please handle…
