"This microscope is complicated to use. The free software has many bugs and causes a lot of system errors."

The Leica TCS confocal microscope allows the examination of fluorescent specimens with clarity and resolution that far exceeds that of conventional epifluorescence microscopy. The fluorochromes are excited in a very narrow plane using laser illumination. The stimulated emissions are also collected from that narrow plane using sensitive photomultiplier tubes that detect light of only the selected wavelengths. The Leica software allows image manipulations for 3-D reconstruction of optical sections, creation of movies showing rotation of images, and sophisticated calculations of intensities and ratios.
