Laser Microdissection LMD

Laser Microdissection, also known as LMD or LCM (Laser Capture Microdissection), is a contact- and contamination-free method for isolating specific single cells or entire areas of tissue from a wide variety of tissue samples. The thickness, texture and preparation technique of the original tissue are relatively unimportant. The dissectate is then available for further molecular biological methods such as PCR, real-time PCR, proteomics and other analytical techniques. Laser microdissection is now used in a large number of research fields, e.g. neurology, cancer research, plant analysis, forensics or climate research. The method is meanwhile also applied for manipulation of cell cultures or for microengraving of coverslips.

Our LMD Systems are perfect tools to optimize DNA-Workflows (Genomics), RNA-Workflows (Transcriptomics) and Proteomic-Workflows as they allow to precisely define and collect pure starting material for analysis under visual control.

Specimen collection by gravity – contact-free and contamination-free. Laser Microdissection (LMD) makes it possible to distinguish between relevant and non-relevant cells or tissues. It enables the researcher to obtain homogeneous, ultra-pure samples from heterogeneous starting material.

Researcher can selectively and routinely analyze regions of interest down to single cells from all kinds of tissues, even living cells from cell culture, to obtain results that are relevant, reproducible, and specific.

Leica Microsystems offers two systems for LMD
Leica LMD6500 and LMD7000
