|Full name||Zeiss LSM880 with Airyscan|
The Zeiss LSM880 with Airyscan is a laser scanning confocal microscope that allows researchers to capture high-resolution multi-color 3D images of fixed and living cells. The system is equipped with a heated stage and sample chamber for time-lapse imaging of several hours. The Airyscan technology that is available on this system provides a 1.7x increased resolution compared to normal confocal microscopy (providing approximately 140 nm lateral resolution) as well as an improved signal-to-noise ratio for higher quality images.
Costs: 31.50 euro/h. Training: 63.50 euro/h.
