The FV3000 is a point-scanning confocal. It's superior resolution and optical sectioning capabilites compared to widefield or spinning disk microscopes makes it excellent for imaging thicker tissue, particularly fixed samples, or if you want to go for maximum resolution.
Located in the basement of IBRB in room IBRB01.
