The LSM 700 system features outstanding sensitivity, suitable for classical confocal microscopy and special applications, such as live cell and spectral imaging. It's designed for complex tasks while being easy to operate.
For many users in biomedical research it will provide an entry to high-end applications. With frame rates of up to five fps (512 x 512 pixels), a freely 360° rotatable scanning field and freely definable regions of interest (ROIs), the LSM 700 provides the experimental freedom required for many applications.
The LSM 700 features:
Post processing and analysis is made easy with the ZEN Efficient Navigation software that now comes with all Carl Zeiss confocal LSM systems.
The LSM 700 was acquired in 2013 through funds made available from the North Carolina Biotechnology Center's Institutional Development Grant and the BSOM Office of Research and Graduate Studies. The grant "Acquisition of a Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope to Enhance Research Infrastructure" was submitted by Co-Directors Mary Jane Thomassen, PhD and Barbara Muller-Borer, PhD.
