Leica Laser Microdissection System

System Description

Leica LMD6500 laser microdissection system is designed to dissect live cells, single cells, and specific cell clusters using gravity to gently collect the samples. The dissected material, whatever its size or shape, is collected in a contact-free, contamination-free manner. No additional procedures are necessary for collection. It is the only laser microdissection system with a power-adjustable, high precision laser allowing fast excision of different material.
Additionally, high laser power allows the dissection of thick or hard specimens.
