M24 - LSM780 Axio Imager (upright)

System Description

The M24 system is an upright 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. Designed for live cell imaging, 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, it´s fully programmable and therefore able to run multidimensional experiments including any combination of the following: multiple positions, multiple wavelengths, z-Stacks, time-lapse.
