Webinar: The Solution for Deep Imaging

Leica Multiphoton Confocal System

October 19, 2010

Multiphoton microscopy is the method of choice for non-invasive deep-penetration fluorescence microscopy of thick highly scattering samples.

Multiphoton microscopy is optimal for a diversity of fixed and living biological samples. Specimens can range from thick organ sections, intact organs and whole embryos to entire animals.

Advantages of multiphoton excitation are:

  • Greater penetration depth due to low scattering
  • Reduced phototoxicity due to spatial confinement leads to longer lifetime of living cells
  • Bleaching restricted to focal plane – no volume bleaching
  • Intrinsical optical sectioning properties – no need for a detection pinhole

Join our webinar to hear about Deep Imaging Applications with the Leica multiphoton confocal system Leica TCS SP5 MP.

Learn more about Leica's new, full-integrated Chameleon Compact Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO) solution. The OPO offers you multiphoton excitation up to 1300 nm and therefore even less scattering and deeper tissue penetration.
