Laboratory of Confocal Microscopy at the Department of Botany, Palacký University

The laboratory of microscopy techniques at the Department of Botany was established on December 19th, 2006 as a reference laboratory of Olympus Czech Group, Ltd. Financial support of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic by the project "Variability of Components and Interactions in Plant Pathosystem and Impact of Environmental Factors on Their Expression" (MSM 6198959215) is greatly acknowledged.


The laboratory is equipped with two microscopy systems:

Microscope Fluoview 1000

mikroskop Fluoview 1000

(see below)

Microphotography - camera Olympus DP70

mikroskop Fluoview 1000

Light fluorescence microscope Olympus BX60 / Stereo microscope Olympus SZ40

Confocal laser scanning microscope Fluoview 1000

specification [cz]: FV1000.doc

Inverted fluorescent microscope Olympus IX 81

Equipment for laser confocal microscopy Olympus FV 1000

3 detection channels for the detection of confocal fluorescent image + detector of light/Nomarski DIC
