About

Laser scanning confocal microscopy has become the golden standard in imaging biological samples, allowing for good resolution and flexibility in stainings.

LSM780 is an inverted laser scanning confocal microscope equipped for live imaging (temperature and CO2 control). It has a tunable laser giving it a high flexibility in fluorophore excitation. The GaASP detector allows for detection of faint stainings and spectral imaging (separation of spectrally overlapping fluorophores).

The instrument is located in the Core Facility for Integrated Microscopy, Faculty of Health, University of Copenhagen.
