Our Imaging Unit is equipped with a Leica TCS STED CW SP8
Super-resolution microscope, which is the first equipment of its kind
in Spain. This is a state-of-the art confocal microscope that allows
exploring details of brain tissue, below the limits of diffraction
barrier with a purely optical approach, even on living samples in real
Its technology allows super-resolution optical sections, which can penetrate the samples, and allow the observation of dynamic cellular processes at the nanoscale. It is equipped with a white laser for a more flexible and precise excitation and a super-resolution system that solves structural details in the range of 70-80 nm in a sample double fluorescent labeling.
