LSM 880

Revolutionize Your Confocal Imaging with Airyscan          
Now you can use multicolor samples with any label and get image quality like         
you’ve never seen before. With Airyscan you are always able to select the         
optimal acquisition strategy for your sample: Simply decide whether you want         
to gain 1.7x higher resolution in all three dimensions – resulting in a 5x smaller         
confocal volume. Or push the sensitivity beyond the limits of all conventional         
confocals. Or use the increase in signal-to-noise ratio to speed up your image         
acquisition. The choice is yours.


With Airyscan You Enter a New World of Confocal Performance         
  • Use a true confocal that gives you high sensitivity, improved resolution in x, y and z, and high speed in one system         
  • Increase the resolution of your imaging: with Airyscan you resolve 140 nm laterally and 400 nm axially, at 488 nm         
  • In the optional Virtual Pinhole Mode, you can decide even after the acquisition, which pinhole size best suits your application         
    Perform Quantitative Imaging         
  • Perform gentle imaging of your samples, thanks to the homogeneous illumination with linear scanning, combined with a sensitive detection infrastructure         
  • Working with identical pixel times and continuous scanner monitoring, you perform quantitative imaging at all speeds and scan modes         
  • Get robust and reliable results, even from your most demanding single molecule imaging and analysis         
    Increase Your Productivity         
  • Save time on investigations into localization and interaction of proteins that require multiple fluorescent labels: You collect all these signals in one go         
  • Perform simultaneous spectral detection in a single scan with the highest number of descanned or non descanned channels – including GaAsP technology         
  • Take full advantage of large fields of view and the highest speed of any linear scanning confocal – up to 13 fps
