Zeiss LSM880 Confocal System



LSM880 2+1Ch: a full blown confocal microscope with 7 laser lines (405/458/488/514/561/594/633nm) and 3 detectors of which 1 a GaAsP detector (for green-yellow detection, where GaAsP has highest sensitivity, however, you can also direct other spectra to this detector. The system includes the following

  Motorized stage ,PNF 10x/0.3, PA 20x/0.8, 63x/1.4 objectives incl. DIC, T-PMT for DIC/BF detection, Anti-vibration table,ZEN software which offers:Smart Setup: tell the software which dyes you have, and all settings are made for you. Multichannel, time-lapse, z-stack, multi-position, tiling, lambda acquisition. Spectral unmixing with up to 1nm accuracy (separate up to 10 overlapping dyes!). Photomanipulation: FRAP, photo-activation/conversion,…Image analysis, both interactive as well as automated. Deconvolution (increase the z-resolution even further!). Batch processing and analysis. Colocalization analysis. 3D visualization based on arivis software. ImageJ/FIJI implementation. Time-lapse/z-stack intensity analysis (physiology applications). Free ZEN LE download for offline work, including image analysis, batch processing, 3D visualization and much more. Additionally, the LSM880 also brings:. FCS (fluorescence correlation spectroscopy), free basis version which can analyze 1 channel. Number&Brightness: analyze and define where in the sample polymerization is ongoing (where trimers are versus dimers/monomers etc
