Zeiss LSM710

Zeiss LSM710 Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope

The Zeiss LSM 710 is a state of the art laser scanning confocal microscope that incorporates the latest advances in optics, lightpath 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 Fluorescence Energy Transfer (FRET), colocalization analysis, and Recovery After Photobleaching (FRAP) are available. The multi-time plug in allows automated 3D (x,y,z) or 4 D (x,y,z,t) scans of preprogrammed locations and 3D image stiching. Laser lines for excitation:

  • 405 nm diode laser (for DAPI, ALexa 350)
  • 458 nm, 488 nm, 514 nm multiline argon laser
  • 561 nm diode pumped solid state laser
  • 633 nm HeNe laser
