New multi-photon microscope Leica SP8 DIVE

We are happy to announce the installation of a new multi-photon microscope at the IVIF on the AGORA site. It is an advanced system, equipped with a Mai-Tai laser (690-1040 nm) and an InsightX3 (690-1300 nm) from spectra physics on the top of 4 detectors. This will allowed excitation and emission of at least 4 colors simultaneously. It became possible thanks to the recruitment of Pr. Mikael Pittet to Agora. It will be soon available for booking on IRIS.

AGORA – update on the X-RAD SmART (PXI)

Most of the installation and commissioning have been performed last week. We are still missing the 5 mm collimator. We have had a setback in completion of the training. A small piece that controls the mechanical opening/closing of shutter of the detector broke. A technician is coming on Thursday 10th of October for reparation. Finally the commissioning for the missing collimator should be performed next week.
