Laser Microdissection (LMD) is a microscopic technique for isolating homogeneous, specific and pure targets from heterogeneous samples for downstream analysis (DNA, RNA & proteins). Leica Microsystems LMD systems are used for laser-based microscopic sample dissection and collection. In addition, they can be used with live cell cultures (LCC, e.g. cloning) and as a manipulation tool such as for live cell/organism manipulation, NanoSIMS or CLEM preparation.
In this webinar, learn about the advantages of using Leica Microsystems LMD techniques for precise, contamination-free isolation of specific cell types. Using brain or plant tissue sections as examples, this webinar will provide an overview of the scientific and practical considerations for obtaining highly pure material for further molecular analysis in the field of Parkinson’s disease and plant research.
