Confocal Microscopy

Confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM or LSCM) is a technique for obtaining high- resolution optical images. A confocal laser scanning microscope uses fluorescence, a pin-point focus, mirrors, a laser, and computer to create clear three-dimensional pictures of a specimen. Confocal Microscopy is used in Cell Biology Department and as a core facility for the other departments in the Research Center.
