"I have worked with many confocals like SP8, Fv10i, and ZEISS LSM 510,780. We found that the LSM 780,510 are the best among all. "

"I love this product, the development in microscopy and fluorescent protein has enabled us to do our research a lot better. Confocal microscopy is a fluorescence-imaging technique that produces exquisitely sharp optical sections through biological specimens such as tissue slices. Useful for redox measurement labelling of different dyes."

"This product provides excellent imaging that the general upkeep of the product has been quite variable. There have been several issues with components breaking down. The sales representative was extremely helpful but the frequency of these events is more than a little troubling. The imaging is actually quite good when the components do not break down. I would recommend this if a service contract is obtained. "

"I have been using the LSM 780 for 1 year. It is the best confocal microscope I have used. It’s easy to focus, can take pictures in stacks and it gives you the best picture, which I have adjusted on very few occasions. Their service is excellent and they respond immediately to any troubleshooting matters."

"This system has many options for imaging procedure (tiling, positions, etc.). It produces high quality images, however it could benefit from faster laser switching."

LSM 780 - Obtain Quantitative Information About Your Cells and Individual Molecules.

The sensitivity of LSM 780 is quite simply outstanding. The GaAsP detector achieves 45 percent quantum efficiency compared to 25 percent typically by conventional PMT detectors. This results in accurate details and contrast-rich images of the challenging specimens you encounter in your live cell imaging.

The system’s illumination and detection design allows you to simultaneously acquire up to ten dyes. You excite any common fluorophore with up to eight different lasers, detecting the signals with the 32 channel GaAsP detector. LSM 780 is so sensitive, the system even allows photon counting.

The maximum possible acquisition speed available to you is determined by the sensitivity of your detection system. When you choose LSM 780, you benefit from new GaAsP detectors that bring a significant improvement on signal-to-noise ratio, allowing you to acquire your image sequences at least twice as fast.

Parallel spectral detection also reads 34 channels simultaneously in Lambda mode: you acquire and separate up to ten colors simultaneously.

LSM 780 allows you to achieve images of unparalleled detail, even from the most challenging specimens. The superior quality and sensitivity has been recognized by a distinguished R&D 100 Award in 2011.


LSM 780 Laser Scanning Microscope Features:

  • 32-channel GaAsP detector with a typical quantum efficiency of 45% – a significant improvement on the 25% typically achieved by classic PMT detectors.
  • Potential for photon counting on GaAsP and the new side PMT.
  • With lasers from 355 nm true UV to 660 nm far red, any dye will be excited optimally.
  • Simple adaptation to changing acquisition strategies via the ZEN software’s Smart Setup.
  • Improved ZEN software with modules for e.g. correlative microscopy, deconvolution and time lapse.
  • Improved dynamics for better visualization of weak signals.
  • Active cooling together with oversampling and photon counting modes deliver improved signal-to-noise ratio.
