Leica SP8

  • Inverted confocal microscope
  • 405, 488, 552, 638 nm laserlines
  • Very sensitive HyD detector: photon counting
  • Resonance scanner
  • Multipositions, Tile scan


Lightning has been added to the SP8 confocal. Using optimized image acquisition parameters and on the go deconvolution through parallel GPU processing we can now get superresolution up to 120nm using any dye or fluorescent protein. The process is fast and userfriendly.
