Laser Microdissection Publication List

This list presents current publications in the major application fields for laser microdissection and is updated monthly.

Laser microdissection is a relatively new technique, having first been developed in the 1990s. It makes it possible to obtain homogenous, ultrapure samples from heterogenous starting material. A researcher can selectively and routinely analyze specific regions of interest, down to single cells, to obtain results that are reproducible. Laser microdissection uses a microscope to visualize individual cells or cell clusters. Regions of interest are selected via software, excised from the surrounding tissue by a laser, and collected by gravity into specialized devices for analysis.
