LSM780

The LSM780 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 is fitted with an ablation laser that enables pin-point ablation of single cells with the find-and-click of the mouse.

Zen confocal software including rapid 3D rendering.

Lasers:

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

(Ablation) 337nm

Detectors:

2xPMTs

1x Spectral detector (34 Channel GaAsP detector)

T-PMT

Extras:

Motorized stage, Andor ablation laser system.

Objectives:

A core set of Zeiss confocal objectives are available:

Dry:

10x, 20x

Immersion:

40x 1.3NA oil

63x 1.2NA water

63x 1.4NA oil

Water dipping:

10x, 20x, 40x, 63x 1.0NA water dipping
