The ZEISS LSM 980 is now available with near-infrared (NIR) imaging. Expanding your spectral range into the NIR allows you to use more labels in parallel. Visualize additional structures with more dyes in your multi-color experiments, with the Quasar and NIR detectors efficiently supporting spectral multiplexing experiments and spatial biology applications. NIR fluorescent labels are less phototoxic for living samples due to the longer wavelength. This allows you to investigate living samples for longer periods of time while limiting the influence of light. Additionally, light of longer wavelength ranges is less scattered by the sample tissue, increasing penetration depth.
