Leica Tcs SP5 Confocal Microscope


This is a laser based confocal system that permits measurements of fluorescently labeled tissue sections, individual cells, or particles adhered to matrices over a wide selection of visible wavelengths.

The instrument is equipped with 5 air cooled lasers allowing for excitation wavelengths of 405, 458, 476, 488, 496, 514, 561, 594 and 633 nm.

Analysis of immunofluorescence as well as functional and biochemical kinetic studies can be performed on viable cell samples. The instrument is equipped with a Ludin cube live cell chamber allowing for temperature control allowing for long term observation of viable cell cultures. Intracellular distribution of fluorescence can also be quantified. The instrument has extremely high sensitivity and can differentiate between closely emitting chromophores.

In addition, the Leica TCS SP5 features digital resolution of 64 megapixels X12 bits per channel with 4 detector channels and can measure real time response of time-critical sequences due to its fast scan speed.
