The LSM 710 is the logical evolution of the successful LSM series from Carl Zeiss. The LSM 710 combines and surpasses the advantages and capabilities of alle excisting confocal systems.
Single Point Laser Scanning
The most widely used form of optical sectioning microscope today is the spot scanner. A single spot is focused into the sample and very rapidly moved across the field of view. The returning emission is filtered through a pinhole aperture to reject the out of focus light and the remaining light detected by Photon Multiplier Tubes (PMTs) to form an image.
The single spot approach is slower than parallel scanning techniques but offers great flexibility in terms of image size and imaging techniques, as well as offering the highest optical discrimination of all routine optical sectioning techniques.
- Multi fluorescence imaging in cell and molecular biology, including colocalization analysis and simultaneous spectral imaging of fluorecent protein.
- 3D examinations in vivo and in developmental biology examinations, 3D in-depth imaging and 405 or multiphoton uncaging in neurobiology.
- Live cell imaging, Ion imaging in physiology, FRET, FRAP, and FLIP analysis of molecules, including photoactivation and photoconversion.
- Single molecule analysis with innovative RICS software, FLIM with pulsed lasers in the 405/440 or IR-range, anisotropy imaging in molecular biology.
