LSM7DUO (LSM710) Inverted

The Zeiss LSM7DUO (LSM710) Inverted confocal laser scanning microscope comprises an inverted Zeiss Axio Observer.Z1, seven laser lines, 34-channel QUASAR PMT detectors, and a motorised stage. The microscope supports time-lapse live cell confocal imaging with temperature and atmosphere control, Z-stack 3D imaging and tiled imaging of large specimens
