A laser-scanning microscope sets a new standard for confocal microscopy. It offers maximum performance at a practical price.

The LSM 700 Laser Scanning Microscope from Carl Zeiss Microscopy LLC (Oberkochen, Germany), offers microscopy solutions and systems for research, routine, and industrial applications. In addition, Carl Zeiss Microscopy markets microscopy systems for the clinical market, as well as optical sensor systems for industrial and pharmaceutical applications offers innovative solutions for image analysis with good sensitivity and quality at an attractive price/performance ratio. The fields of application extend from simple routine to multidimensional images.

LSM 700 can be utilized both at individual workstations and in user groups. The microscope has a small footprint, which makes it suitable for small rooms. The fields of application extend from simple routine to multidimensional images in biomedical research.

High flexibility in both application and system structure is the outstanding feature of the LSM 700. The ZEN 2009 software from Carl Zeiss makes its operation very clear and easy to learn allowing intuitive use even by first-time users. Complex methods are easy to control and the user has a clear overview of the experiment at all times. 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.
