Automated Microscope for Gentle and Fast Confocal 4D Imaging

Enhancing ZEISS Celldiscoverer 7 with ZEISS LSM 900 for optical sectioning

News

The proven ZEISS Celldiscoverer 7 is a fully integrated high-end imaging system with various incubation and detection options. It combines the easy-to-use automation of a boxed microscope with the image quality and flexibility of a classic inverted research microscope.  To get better data from three-dimensional samples, it is now possible to add ZEISS LSM 900 with Airyscan 2 for confocal imaging.

A flexible, integrated microscope

ZEISS Celldiscoverer 7 simplifies the laboratory setup and makes work more comfortable. All components are optimized for hassle-free automated imaging. New users and multi-user facilities especially enjoy the in-built automation and usability features when setting up complex experiments. Users can expect better data in shorter times, with less training and maintenance. As the user’s requirements grow, they can expand ZEISS Celldiscoverer 7 with confocal technology, external cameras, deconvolution, and additional environmental control – whatever they need for the challenge of live cell observation.
