M21 - LSM 710 2Pi Axio Observer (inverted) with incubation
The M21 system is an inverted point laser scanning confocal microscope (LSM710). 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. The system is also equipped with the Chameleon 2-Photon laser and the non-descaned detectors (NDD) as well as a motorized xy-stage.
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.
This makes it suitable e.g. for a xyzt-experiments on up to 4 slides, using a special stage insert and the 2-Photon Laser is especially suitable for deep tissue imaging.
