LSM880

The LSM880 upright confocal is particularly suitable for high quality 3D imaging using combinations of fluorescent proteins or dyes that would otherwise be difficult to distinguish. It can fit larger objects via the attached Axio-Examiner microscope stand, making it particularly useful for time-lapse imaging of whole plants. The Airyscan module permits super-resolution imaging, achieving lateral resolutions of up to 120nm.

Zen confocal software including rapid 3D rendering.

 

Lasers:

(Confocal) 405nm, 440nm, 458nm, 488nm, 514nm, 561nm, 633nm
