The LSM 710 is an inverted confocal microscope equipped to handle all your fixed tissue imaging needs. A confocal uses point illumination to help overcome some of the limitations of traditional wide-field fluorescence microscopes, including improved optical resolution at depth, decreased background fluorescence and thin optical sectionining for 3D reconstructions.  It can collect transmitted light images (bright field and DIC), as well as conventional and confocal fluorescence images. The microscope is a top of the line spectral point scanner equipped with the following laser lines (405, 458, 488, 514, 561, and 633nm) software for image processing and analysis are also available for use.
