Zeiss LSM 710 Confocal Microscope

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Laser scanning confocal microscope


  1. Resource Description
    The Zeiss LSM710 laser-scanning confocal microscope is able to generate high-resolution images of fluorescent specimens. It is especially suited for live cell imaging of relatively thick samples (up to approx. 100 µM). Its scanning unit has a spectral recycling loop, two sensitive PMT detectors and a filter-free spectral separation module that can be continuously set over the entire wavelength range. It is equipped with lasers from violet to far red (405, 458, 488, 514, 561 and 633 nm excitation wavelengths). It has a motorized stage capable of tiling, multi-point mark, and find memory function. Current stage holders will support slides, circular glass-bottom culture dishes, and well plates with glass-coverslip bottoms. It is also equipped with an environmental chamber and full stage incubator for precise temperature and CO2 control. The purchase of the Zeiss LSM 710 confocal microscope for HIMB was made possible by a generous donation from Pam Omidyar (financing provided through the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology - SOEST).
