2-Photon Microscope: Bruker - Ultima Investigator (2016/2017)

The Ultima Investigator is a 2-photon microscope and thus enables a deeper tissue penetration than regular confocal microscopes. Therefore it is well suited for the imaging of living tissue in an intact organ such as fluorescently labeled neurons in the brain of an anesthesized mouse.
