The LSM 700 Laser Scanning Microscope from Carl Zeiss is designed for confocal microscopy at an affordable price.
The LSM 700 Laser Scanning Microscope from Carl Zeiss is designed for confocal
microscopy at an affordable price. The LSM 700 provides flexibility both in
application and system structure. The fields of application extend from
simple routine to multidimensional images in biomedical research. The system
can be combined with a large number of microscope stands and tailored to the
personal requirements of each user. This makes it ideal as an entry-level
system for confocal microscopy.
The optical design of the LSM 700 guarantees high efficiency in the detection
even of weak fluorescence signals. Key elements of the optical system
include the beam path design with its maximum optical precision and the
uncompromising concentration on the essentials, the beam combiner system for
extremely accurate beam coupling and superimposition, the beam splitter with
continuous and loss-free splitting of the light spectrum and, last but not
least, the extremely stable pinhole.
