This confocal laser scanning microscope’s lasers are designed for deeper imaging of fixed tissue samples and live animals with high sensitivity. Paired with Airyscan module, images are 1.7 higher in resolution and sensitivity than compared to other scopes of this type.
With a large field of view and high image-acquisition speed, the microscope is able to identify and localize molecules of interest and their interactions in space and time while minimizing the input of light.
