Confocal microscopy

Wednesday, 09 August, 2006 | Supplied by:

Leica Microsystems has released a compact, high resolution spectral confocal system - the Leica TCS SPE - which features true spectral detection across the full emission range.

Optimal resolution is ensured by four solid-state lasers from 488 to 635 nm, with a 405 nm option for nuclear staining. The Leica TCE SPE utilises the Leica ACS (Advanced Correction System) technology for perfect colocalisation and maximum transmission.

The Leica TCS SPE requires minimal training and first results are achieved immediately, even by confocal newcomers. In core imaging facilities, the TCS SPE serves as an expertly designed system to increase capacity and to relieve the demands on high end confocal systems.

The Leica TCS SPE is highly integrated, compact and robust and with its small footprint and standard room requirements the system will fit into any laboratory. Its supply unit is no bigger than a standard PC and provides power, up to four lasers, an integrated PC and a DVD-drive. Optimally selected long-life components and robust technology reduce the cost of ownership whilst still providing spectacular confocal images.
