LSM 880 Airyscan – confocal laser scanning microscope

 
 

System Description

The LSM 880 Airyscan is a confocal laser scanning microscope from Zeiss on an inverted Observer Z1 stand. All components are controlled by the ZEN 2 (black) software. It is able to run multidimensional experiments including multichannel acquisition, z-stacks, tile scanning, and time-lapse. Since it is an inverted microscope, it is suitable for imaging both live cells and fixed samples. It is equipped with six laser lines, detectors for detecting both fluorescence signals and transmitted light DIC, and a z-piezo.
