This Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) method is extraordinarily gentle and ideal for microdissection of single cells or small numbers of cells. The ArcturusXT™ and Veritas™ microdissection instruments each combine LCM and UV laser cutting for ultimate microdissection flexibility.
These instruments remove the guesswork from the microdissection process by allowing researchers to maintain custody of the sample throughout the experiment, ensuring that only the desired material has been collected.
Overview of the Applied Biosystems® Arcturus® Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) Process: Arcturus® LCM is a simple four step process to isolate pure cell populations and effectively recover biomolecules for downstream analysis. In this overview of the process, obtain everything you need for microgenomics—from tissue preparation to analysis.
"I have not found this system easy to use, it has experienced many technical problems and the laser is very unpredictable at times. There is a long learning curve to teach new people to use the system."
