Zeiss LSCM 800 with Airyscan

Location: Biosciences Room 137

The Zeiss 800 Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope (LSCM) offers high-end confocal imaging in a compact set-up, complete with two highly sensitive GaAsP detectors alongside an Airyscan detector. The Airyscan detector provices an improved resolution of 120nm (in x,y dimension) and 350nm (in z dimension) with an singal-to-noise ratio (SNR) 4-8x better than standard detectors.

This sytem is best suited for standard fixed cell and tissue samples
