Maximum operating convenience ...
Like all LSM units of the fifth generation, the hallmark of LSM 5 PASCAL is a fully motorized Scanning module. All moving components, such as emission filter wheels, main and secondary dichroic beam splitters, the pinhole and the mechanical attenuators for each laser line, are computer-controlled and take up the required position making the set-up error free and without any need for cumbersome manual operation. A special benefit in practice: the position can be reset automatically at the press of a button.
... highest resolution ...
In addition, the LSM 5 PASCAL provides image sizes of up to 2,048x2,048 pixels, scan fields of unrivaled size along with maximum linearity, 12-bit resolution per channel, high scan speeds, high-sensitivity detectors (selected photomultipliers) and short light paths from the specimen to the detector – features which are unique in its class.
... and great flexibility.
Special emphasis has been placed on the flexibility of the LSM 5 PASCAL. Six versions with one or two confocal channels and combinations of lasers in the blue and green spectrum and a choice of five microscope stands are available for the most varied applications in the life and materials sciences. The LSM 5 PASCAL can be converted from an upright to an inverted microscope within minutes. Confocal microscopy is no more than a flick of the wrist away from conventional microscopy.
