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

 

Detectors:

Noisy gene atlas to help reveal how plants ‘hedge their bets’ in race for survival

Jan 24, 2019

As parents of identical twins will tell you, they are never actually identical, even though they have the same genes. This is also true in the plant world. Now, new research by Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University (SLCU) is helping to explain why ‘twin’ plants, with identical genes, grown in identical environments continue to display unique characteristics all of their own.
