Leica launches improved platform for confocal and two-photon
17 July 2009
Leica Microsystems has optimized its confocal and two-photon
microscope platform, the Leica TCS SP5 II in close co-operation with
leading research scientists.
The new specific optics for imaging or laser manipulation provide the
same excellent quality for both applications. In case of manipulation, a
new optical module provides more energy in the confocal volume to
achieve better research results.
The Leica TCS SP5 II features the broadest band of imaging speeds and
resolutions ever available in one confocal microscope — from 1 to 16,000
lines per second and up to 64 megapixels per image. As a true
single-point confocal, it combines fast frame rates, best resolution and
deep tissue imaging with full multi-channel capabilities.
The broadband multi-spectral imaging for multi-labelled specimens is
supported by the dynamic beam splitter AOBS and is further extended by
expanding the highly sensitive SP prism spectrophotometer detection to
five simultaneous channels.
The intelligent and intuitive user interface in combination with the
new 30” (76.2 cm) monitor provides best ease of use across all Leica
Microsystems advanced fluorescence systems.
A broad range of application wizards, such as FRAP, FRET,
electrophysiology, single molecule detection, FLIM and FCS turns the
system into the leading research tool for shared resource laboratories.
