Project description

The equipment described in the current project consists of an upgrade of a microscopy system that is suited for analysis of live cells using transmitted light and fluorescence microscopy. The upgrade consists of a structured light illumination system that allows for acquisistion of high resolution fluorescence images of live cells and virus-infected cells with reduced autofluorescence.
