Zeiss LSM 700

Laser scanning confocal microscopy has become the golden standard in imaging biological samples, as it allows for good resolution and flexibility in stainings. LSM700 is a simple upright laser scanning confocal microscope optimal for imaging fixed triple stained (Blue, Green and Red / Far-red) samples.
