Leica DMi8 for FRAP
Can I do both FRAP experiments and classical fluorescence microscopy with the Leica WF FRAP module connected to the Leica DMi8?
Yes, the Leica WF FRAP is added to the Leica DMi8 via one Infinity Port. This leaves the second Infinity Port free for the addition of fluorescent light sources and does not affect the overall operation of the microscope.
What laser safety class is the Leica WF FRAP?
The Leica WF FRAP is a laser safety class 1 device.
What type of laser does the Leica WF FRAP use?
A 450 nm diode laser is integrated into the Leica WF FRAP module.
What type of camera should I use for FRAP?
Often, recovery times are very fast, so using a camera that can capture events at a high speed will ensure reliable results. A high-speed triggered camera, such as the Leica DFC7000 T or the Andor Zyla, is needed for the Leica WF FRAP. The Leica DFC7000 T is especially interesting for users who perform simultaneous multiple fluorescence imaging.
