In this system, the microscope is coupled to a perfusion system that allows dynamic assessment of the fluorescence in different experimental situations. In our laboratory, the system is used to measure Ca 2+ ion influx (Fura-2), the bioavailability of NAD (P) H (autofluorescence) and ATP (Magnesium Green). In addition to the use described in our laboratory, this equipment can also assess, in real time, the fluorescence of any substance, since it has monochromator, in any tissue or cell line. The characteristics presented above, justify the adoption of a policy as a Multi-user equipment. (AU)
