Epifluorescence Microscope: Leica – THUNDER Imager 3D Live Cell (2021)

Leica's THUNDER Imager 3D Live Cell is an inverted epifluorescence microscope for multi-colour imaging of live and fixed cells. It is equipped with an incubator including temperature- and CO2-control modules. Based on the use of computational clearing this microscope can also be used to resolve details in thick samples in real time.
