Fluorescence Microscopy with the VS14

A simple upgrade for fluorescence imaging is to replace the standard camera bundled with many microscopes with a cooled CCD camera such as the VS14. The images shown below clearly show the high sensitivity of the ICX285 sensor for the same exposure setting of 300ms.The image is of HT29 MTX, a goblet cell clone derived from the human intestinal cell line HT29 a colon tumour cell which after growing to confluency produces numerous mucus buds on the apical surface. The mucus buds were tagged with Rhodamine fluorescently labelled Wheat Germ Agglutinin WGA.  Lesuffleur, T.; Babat, A.; Luccioni, C.; Beaumatin, J.; Clair, M.; Kornowski, A.; Dussaulx, E.; Dutrillaux, B.; Zweibaum, A.
