Application Suite for Fluorescence Microscopy
The new version of Leica Microsystems' research microscopy software LAS AF 3 (Leica Application Suite Advanced Fluorescence) is designed to cover the whole spectrum of fluorescence applications from routine work to sophisticated tasks in biomedical research, such as deep imaging of thicker tissue or interactive time lapse experiments.
A key feature of the application suite is its modern user interface, optimized for fluorescence imaging. It reduces stray light from the computer screen disturbing light-sensitive experiments. The wizard based interface guides users safely and intuitively through data recording and evaluation. The application suite offers full control over the microscope hardware while minimizing user interaction through intelligent automation, e.g. by opening and closing shutters according to the selected contrasting method. Matching DIC prisms are moved into the light path when changing objectives; in fluorescence mode the DIC prisms are automatically removed from the light path to obtain best image quality. All system parameters can be reloaded and applied to future experiments for maximal reproducibility. The intelligent automation and the ergonomic design of LAS AF reduce learning and training time thus allowing the user to focus on the research rather than on the software.
