Zeiss LSM 880 Inverted Confocal Microscope (with Airyscan, Incubation, and 34 channel spectral detector)

Resource Type

  1. Confocal microscope


  1. Resource Description
    The LSM 880 confocal microscope offers 34-channels of supreme sensitivity, owing to its GaAsP detectors with the added bonus of a super-resolution Airyscanner. This extraordinary point scanner can simultaneously image and spectrally separate up to 10 different dyes, create high resolution 3D images over large tiled areas, or image single molecules through fluorescence correlation techniques. The unparalleled sensitivity of this system also makes it the ideal live-cell imaging point scanner, allowing for high-speed confocal acquisition with brilliant signal to noise ratios. The Airyscan detector removes the requirement for a tightly closed pinhole allowing more of the light collected from your sample to reach the detector. Along with deconvolution Airyscan provides a 1.7x improvement over the theoretical diffraction limit. Laser lines: 405, 458, 488, 514, 561, 594, 633 Commonly imaged dyes: all visible spectrum and near IR dyes (405-700nm)
