Carl Zeiss is setting
a new performance standard for entry-level confocal microscopy with the introduction
of the LSM 700 Laser Scanning Microscope, which uses proven modules from the
world's largest range of fluorescence and laser scanning microscope systems
to offer radical flexibility in both application and system structure. The LSM
700 may be combined with a large number of microscope stands to deliver innovative
image analysis solutions with exceptional sensitivity and quality tailored to
the personal requirements of each user.
The LSM 700 Laser Scanning Microscope from Carl Zeiss sets a new standard for confocal microscopy with outstanding performance at a favorable price.
The optical design of the LSM 700 guarantees high efficiency in the detection
even of weak fluorescence signals. Key elements of the optical system include
the beam path design with its maximum optical precision and the uncompromising
concentration on the essentials, the beam combiner system for extremely accurate
beam coupling and superimposition, the beam splitter with continuous and loss-free
splitting of the light spectrum, and an extremely stable pinhole.
The benefits of the LSM 700 are ideally suited to both individual workstations
and user groups. In addition, the system's small footprint makes it suitable
for small rooms. Operation is simple and easy due to the tight integration with
the Carl Zeiss ZEN 2009 software and the intuitive design allows even first-time
users to image successfully unaided. The ZEN 2009 software allows users to set-up
complex methodologies quickly and displays a clear overview of the experiment
at all times.
