ZEISS LSM 9 family for life sciences research introduced
Life sciences research can be demanding, and if you are involved in neuroscience, cancer research or other cell- or organism-based disciplines, you’ll often need microscopy data for your work. Emerging technologies such as CRISPR / Cas open up innovative ways of thinking and allow you to ask altogether new scientific questions, deeply affecting your imaging experiments. To monitor life as undisturbed as possible requires low labeling density for your biological models—for example, 3D cell culture, spheroids, organoids or even whole organisms—and this calls for 3D imaging that combines optical sectioning with low phototoxicity and high speed.
The new Multiplex mode
The new Multiplex mode for ZEISS Airyscan 2 delivers more information in less time. Smart illumination and detection schemes allow parallel pixel acquisition for fast and gentle confocal microscopy. Researchers can now image their most challenging three-dimensional samples with high framerates in superresolution. The speed and sensitivity gain can be used to gently capture either fixed samples in larger fields of view with higher throughput and without bleaching, or dynamic processes in living specimens with minimal disturbance.
The Multiplex mode is available for the whole ZEISS LSM 9 family: ZEISS LSM 980 is the flexible research platform with complementary multiphoton and superresolution capabilities. ZEISS LSM 900 is a very compact system that delivers image quality without complexity.
