Laser scanning microscope LSM 780
The LSM 780 is equipped with a 32-Channel GaAsP spectral detector, which is actively cooled and has a high quantum efficiency (typically 45%). To complement this detector, two side PMTs expand the spectral working range. The group of 32 + 2 detectors allows you to reproduce spectral measurements reliably and without deviation. Since this is a parallel spectral detection design, it offers simultaneous 34-channel readout in lambda mode. Up to 10 dyes can be acquired and separated at the same time. With the new GaAsP detectors, you get up to 2x better SNR for 2x faster acquisition.
Thanks to the excellent photon-counting sensitivity of the LSM 780, it is possible to perform Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) to analyze single molecule dynamics. Up to 6 channels can be used in FCS mode, providing great flexibility in your stainings and samples.
