Zeiss LSM 510 NLO META

Experience freedom with your dyes and applications

The new illumination and detection design of LSM 710 brings complete freedom to your fluorescence microscopy. You work with up to ten dyes and use continuous spectral detection across the complete wavelength range. LSM 710 enables confocal microscopy for a wide variety of applications.

With the inverse Axio Observer from Carl Zeiss, LSM 710 offers you unrivalled confocal microscopy in cell and developmental biology. Upright stands such as Axio Imager or Axio Examiner offer you have all the equipment you need to record neurobiological, physiological and developmental relationships to an exceptional standard.

LSM 710 gives you flexibility, allowing you to perform confocal microscopy in exactly the way you need.

  • Oversampling with 30 percent longer sampling time per pixel for low noise
  • Excellent contrast characteristics, even with strongly reflective samples thanks to laser suppression that has been improved by 100-1000x
  • A huge range of QUASAR detector configuration options  to meet your requirements
  • The innovative grid and spectral recycling loop design ensures that not even a single valuable proton will be lost from your sample.
  • Up to 80 percent dark noise reduction  thanks to the QUASAR array detector by Carl Zeiss
  • 34-channel parallel imaging across the complete wavelength range
  • APD imaging with photon counting
  • Low noise electronics and lasers

LSM 710 giving wings to cell and developmental biology

The PTC laser concept of LSM 710 is revolutionary in confocal microscopy: the system uses pigtailed lasers directly on the scanning head. With up to eight ports, you couple near-UV, VIS and IR lasers in many combinations.

The 34-channel QUASAR detector by Carl Zeiss allows the optimal acquisition strategy for various emission spectra, without being bound to filters and dichroic mirrors you simply configure your experiment in the software.

The spectral signal you obtain is an excellent basis for high-resolution spectral imaging and the parallel detection of up to ten colors. If needed, you can direct any parts of the spectrum to the required detector.

When it comes to excitation, the new TwinGate main beam splitter has two dichroic filter wheels and high transmission of up to 100 combinations of laser lines allowing for the optimum fluorescence excitation of your samples.

The spectral recycling loop of LSM 710 amplifies signals by feeding the unseparated part of the emission light through the grid a second time before adding it to the complete signal. When used with the QUASAR detector, you will reduce dark noise by two-thirds and significantly improve the sensitivity of your microscope.
