Laser Microdissection Publication List

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 regions of interest down to single cells to obtain results that are reproducible, and specific. Laser microdissection uses a microscope to visualize individual cells or cell clusters. Regions of interest are selected by software, excised from the surrounding tissue by a laser, and collected by gravity into specialized devices for analysis. This references list is monthly updated and presents current papers in the major application fields for laser microdissection.
