Carl Zeiss Introduces the LSM 700
(Nanowerk News) The LSM 700 Laser Scanning Microscope from Carl Zeiss sets a new standard for confocal microscopy with maximum performance at a favorable price. Building upon proven technology concepts, it offers innovative solutions for image analysis with exceptional sensitivity and quality – with an extremely attractive price/performance ratio.
High flexibility both in application and system structure is the outstanding feature of the LSM 700. 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 benefits of the LSM 700 can be utilized both at individual workstations and in user groups. The system's small footprint also makes it suitable for small rooms. 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 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.
