  • Application Area: Confocal Microscopy

"I am managing a confocal microscopy facility at the University of Verona, where we have two TCS SP5 confocal and multiphoton microscopes. They work well and are user-friendly with most users usually achieving the ability to use the system quickly. It is a stable system and very versatile. I would recommend this equipment."

"Very nice confocal microscope. STED only useful for a very few samples (no enhanced resolution in xyz, just xy- it's limited to particles & filaments/fibres)."

Review date: 17 Oct 2012 | TCS SP5
The Leica TCS SP5 Confocal fully covers a broad range of requirements in confocal and multiphoton imaging with excellent overall performance. The system provides the full range of scan speeds at the highest resolution.

With its proven, high-efficiency SP detection (five channels simultaneously) and optional AOBS (Acousto Optical Bream Splitter), the Leica TCS SP5 delivers bright, noise-free images with minimal photo damage at high speed.

The system is also the platform for the new Leica DM6000 CFS (Confocal Fixed Stage) for physiological and electrophysiological experiments and for the new super resolution Leica TCS STED confocal microscope.
