Zeiss LSM 980 has arrived!

The Research Core Unit for Lasermicroscopy has a new microscope.

The confocal laser scanning unit Zeiss LSM 980 is connected to an inverted microscope stand. The system is equipped with a cell culture incubator, controlling temperature, humidity and CO2 for live cell imaging. The new microscope allows fast imaging of large fields of view with high resolution and a better signal-to-noise ratio at lower photon dose.

The superresolution detector Airyscan 2 increases the lateral resolution about twofold to 120 nm. In addition the detector in its multiplex mode allows very fast imaging rates at 9.6 frames per second for the maximum field of view.

Starting immediately, users can register for a training session on the microscope.
