ZEISS LSM 8 Family with Airyscan: Revolutionize your Confocal Imaging with Increased Resolution, Sensitivity, and Speed

Renée Dalrymple, Carl Zeiss Microscopy, LLC, USA

Laser scanning confocal microscopes are a widely used imaging tool due to their ability to produce high contrast optically sectioned images for a variety of sample types and applications. Confocal microscopes use an aperture, or pinhole, at a conjugate focal plane to reject out of focus light producing an optically sectioned image. The pinhole by design discards a significant amount of light containing useful resolution and intensity information. The Airyscan detector from ZEISS improves upon the resolution, sensitivity and speed of confocal imaging by replacing the confocal pinhole with a unique area detector, which captures and utilizes more light. Resolution down to 120 nm in x,y and 350 nm in z can be achieved simultaneously with higher SNR allowing acquisitions with lower laser illumination. The Fast mode for Airyscan additionally provides the ability to image four times faster while maintaining improved resolution and SNR over conventional confocal imaging. The result is gentle superresolution imaging and the speed to quantify fast events and improve throughput. Join us and learn how ZEISS Airyscan can help your imaging experiments in completely new ways.
