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.

Laser microdissection is used for a wide range of applications in neurobiology and immunology as well as in the developmental and cell biology of animal and plant organisms.

The main areas of application are the research of cancer and other diseases, the search for genetic modifications, molecular pathology, molecular biological and biochemical studies.

Laser Microdissection is widely used is several fields of science. Here you find the highlights of recent publications subdivided into DNA-Research, RNA-Research, Proteomics, Fluorescence, Cancer-Research, Neuroscience, Developmental Research & Aging, Plant Research, Forensics, Live Cell Culture and other application fields (Miscellaneous).
