Carl Zeiss LSM 780 Imaging System Goes Beyond Traditional Confocal Limits

Published: Jan 10, 2013

January 10, 2013 -- The award winning LSM 780 from Carl Zeiss has an almost doubled rate of sensitivity and counting and an increased speed and image quality that lets the user analyze single molecules at a new level. The confocal laser scanning microscope features a high-sensitivity GaAsP detector, innovative software functions for single molecule and high dynamic range imaging, and a 355nm CW laser. Ideal for research in neurobiology, physiology, and developmental biology, currently more than 100 leading Bioscience labs worldwide are using the advantages of the GaAsP technology already.

Ralf Engelmann, Product Manager at Carl Zeiss Microscopy, states: “The LSM 780 shows that we are striving to continuously lead the way in the world of optical sectioning technologies.” Featuring a highly advanced internal spectral detector, the LSM 780 is able to show the whole color spectrum of dyes without any extra settings. This innovative new feature provides the added benefits of saving the operator time and reducing data volume.
