The Leica TCS SP5 Confocal
The Leica TCS SP5 Confocal fully covers a broad range of requirements in confocal and multiphoton imaging with excellent overall performance. The system provides the full range of scan speeds at the highest resolution. With its proven, high-efficiency SP detection (five channels simultaneously) and optional AOBS (Acousto Optical Beam Splitter), the Leica TCS SP5 delivers bright, noise-free images with minimal photo damage at high speed.
This confocal microscope has violet (also used for UV), indigo, blue, blue-green, green and red lasers with three fluorescence channels which are totally configurable for any band. The system is also the platform for the new Leica DM6000 CFS (Confocal Fixed Stage) for physiological and electrophysiological experiments and for the new super resolution Leica TCS STED confocal microscope.
Objectives: 10X dry, 20X dry, 40X oil, 63X oil and 100X oil. The environmental control is 37°C chamber, humidified and 5% CO2 capable.
Stage: X-Y-Z computer control, tiling and 3D reconstruction available with FRET and FRAP wizards and is time-lapse capable. It uses LAS AF (Windows XP.)
