  • NEW Instrument in the NeuroTechnology Studio

Leica DMI6000 Inverted Microscope  

  • This is an older microscope that was donated to the NeuroTechnology Studio.  It is in good working condition, but provides limited options and is intended primarily for users who want to quickly check their samples’ fluorescence intensity level, or manually take fluorescence images.
