The observation of rapid biological processes requires high-speed imaging systems. Traditional confocal scanning microscopy has an inherent handicap of serial image collection. Leica Microsystems overcomes this handicap with the Tandem Scanner, a large FOV scanner switchable with a resonant scanning system. Along with HyD™ and inherent low-dosage effects you get better cell viability, high-speed and perfect confocality all in one go.
Designing a high precision optical instrument such as a confocal microscope is the ultimate balancing act of excellent beam splitting, high scan speed, and flexibility. Leica continues to innovate photon efficiency by means of the acousto-optical beam splitter (AOBS) or LIAchroic beam splitters, dedicated scan optics with new coatings and CS2 objectives as well as the SP detector design along with HyD™ - to name but a few. Together they ensure that every photon emitted by the sample is preserved to contribute to your brilliant imagery.
An all new second generation white light laser (WLL) rounds off the most innovative laser source for confocal imaging with much improved image quality for live cell imaging. This is achieved thanks to the unique Lightgate technology for maximal image contrast under most challenging conditions. Combine a super-continuum source for fluorescence lifetime imaging with literally trillions of excitation combinations and the unique “lambda squared” excitation-emission scan - thanks to the AOBS. You are effectively turning your confocal instrument into a multi-modal, multi-spectral spatially resolved photonics laboratory. All new possibilities are waiting to be explored.
