M09 - LSM780 Axio Observer (inverted) with incubation

System Description

The M09 system is an inverted point laser scanning confocal microscope (LSM780). It is a complete spectral system allowing the free choice of detection and the acquisition of lambda-stacks as well as subsequent unmixing for the separation of dyes with overlapping emission spectra. LSM780 features high sensitive array of 32 GaAsP (Gallium Arsenide) detectors with QE of 45% and up to 2x SNR.
The system is equipped with a motorized xy-stage and definite focus (hardware autofocus device).
The system is fully programmable and therefore able to run multidimensional experiments including any combination of the following: multiple positions, multiple wavelengths, z-stacks, time-lapse.
