The Leica SP8-iPhox uses solid state lasers and ultrasensitive detectors for rapid low-signal imaging. Hardware autofocus prevents unwanted drift during time-courses and a new Stage Overview mode allows quick and easy scanning over large areas.

 

Equipment: 

Leica SP8 on DMI8 inverted microscope. 2x HyD SMD detectors, 2x PMTs, 1x t-PMT, fully automated stage, hardware autofocus, Resonant scanner option for high-speed scanning.

 

Software: 

LAS X with Live Data mode.

 

Lasers:

Solid-state 405nm, 448nm, 488nm, 514nm, 552nm.

 

Objectives:

5x, 10x, 20x dry, , 63x 1.2NA water, 63x 1.4NA oil.
