Leica DMIRBE (inverted) FRET/fluorescence/DIC microscope (Freedman)
Leica DMIRBE (inverted) FRET/fluorescence/DIC microscope (Freedman) - allows single cell ratiometric measurements of cytoplasmic (Fura-2) and ER calcium (FRET). Can analyze protein-protein interactions by FRET. Attached UV flash lamp allows photo-activation of IP3 to study signal transduction mechanisms in single cells.
Scope location: 389 Old Vet Bldg., 3800 Spruce St.
