Dear CIF Users,

The Leica SP5 confocal at the Bugnon campus is out of order until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience and will keep you informed of any update on the situation.

The CIF Staff 

 *** UPDATE 06.08.2014 *** 


The Leica SP5 is back online after a couple of days of thorough testing. A few considerations should still catch your attention:

  • This system is becoming quite old now, and might not provide the best results you could achieve with more recent confocals.
  • Before operating the microscope, it needs at least half an hour with the lasers on to stabilize itself.
  • Some instabilities issues might remain, and in case of such bugs, just try to restart the whole setup to see if it fixes itself. In case it does not recover, please call someone from the CIF staff.
  • Finally, this system is due to replacement before the end of the year. People looking for a better Leica confocal experience can get in touch with the Epalinges and Dorigny platforms where Leica confocals are also installed.
