Zeiss Confocal LSM710

The Zeiss LSM 710 is a state of the art laser scanning confocal microscope that incorporates the latest advances in optics, light path efficiency, low noise scan electronics and detectors. This instrument has advanced imaging capabilities offering high sensitivity with superior signal to noise ratio, spectral analysis with a 34 channel detector and the ability to monitor dynamic changes of multiple fluorophores. Modules for advanced confocal applications such as colocalization analysis, and Recovery After Photobleaching (FRAP) are available. The multi-time macro allows automated 3D (x,y,z) or 4D (x,y,z,t) scans of preprogrammed locations and 3D image stitching.


Laser lines for excitation:

• 405 nm diode laser (for DAPI)

• 458 nm, 488 nm, 514 nm multiline Argon laser

• 561 nm diode pumped solid state laser

• 633 nm HeNe laser

Emission windows can be flexibly selected with 2 flanking photomultiplier (PMT) channels and a 34 channel PMT array. The system can be operated in lambda mode with 34 spectral detectors that collect the entire wavelength range in one scan or in channel mode with up to 10 simultaneously active detection channels that can be set as needed. 

Differential interference contrast images can be acquired simultaneously.

Microscope and Accessories: The scan head is attached to a Zeiss Axio Observer Z1 inverted microscope with motorized, programmable x,y,z stage, joystick and touch panel docking control station. Temperature and CO2 control chambers are available.
