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.
Whatever your live cell imaging needs, equip your microscope with a spinning disk confocal, for long term time lapse imaging. LaserTIRF 3 delivers high contrastimages of single molecules or strucutres close to membrane and cover slip. DirectFRAP allows dynamic photomanipulation studies to reveal protein dynamics. Combine all of those technologies to perform your ideal live cell experiment.
