Laser Scanning Microscopes

Sensitive, spectral confocal imaging and topography

Overview of LSM 710 and LSM 780 Laser Scanning Microscopes

Confocal Scanning Microscopes

A confocal laser scanning microscope scans a sample sequentially point by point, or multiple points at once. The pixel information is assembled into an image. As a result you acquire optical sections with high contrast and high resolution in x, y and z . The LSM 8 family with optional GaAsP detection and Airyscan delivers supreme image quality with highest sensitivity for quantitative imaging in life sciences. Use LSM 700 for advanced topography analyses on materials surfaces.


LSM 800

Your compact confocal laser scanning microscope, complete with highly sensitive GaAsP detector technology and fast linear scanning. Add Airyscan and gain sensitivity and 1.7× higher resolution in all three dimensions.

LSM 880

Your flexible and modular confocal laser scanning microscope for high end fluorescence imaging. Add Airyscan for highest signal-to-noise, resolution and speed. Combine LSM 880 with NLO functionality for multiphoton experiments or ELYRA for superresolution imaging.
