ZEISS LSM 880 with Airyscan

Scientists Choice Logo

Revolutionize Your Confocal Imaging with Airyscan. Your samples tend either to be very small, move very fast or bleach very quickly. Or do all of that at once. To get unbiased data from live cells or other weakly labelled samples, there's no such thing as too much sensitivity, resolution or speed. Each photon of emission light is precious. Now you can use multicolor samples with any label and get image quality like you’ve never seen before. With Airyscan you are always able to select the optimal acquisition strategy for your sample: Simply decide whether you want to gain 1.7x higher resolution in all three dimensions – resulting in a 5x smaller confocal volume. Or push the sensitivity beyond the limits of all conventional confocals. Or use the increase in signal-to-...Read more

  • Application Area:A powerful tool in food science microscopy

  • ZEISS LSM 880 with Airyscan

"It permits observation of selected levels within thick samples. Easily improves the resolution along the viewing axis and permits optical sectioning of the sample. Materials exposed to external stress situations can be visualized. The fundamentals of the operations required are considered, including a discussion of common laser sources and different kinds of fluorescent dyes."

  • Application Area:Core Facility

  • ZEISS LSM 880 with Airyscan

"The very latest and highest performance confocal microscope on the market. With the optional upgrade, the increased sensitivity makes it second to none. My user base found it extremely easy to use thanks to the intuitive ZEN software that they are already familiar with. This made stepping across from the LSM 5 series or 7 series trouble free"

  • Application Area:Confocal Microscopy

  • ZEISS LSM 880 with Airyscan

"A fantastic advancement from Zeiss. Microtubules were resolved to a level that I hadn't seen before. The ease to which the images were obtained and the quality of the images makes this a must have confocal microscope."

Description

Revolutionize Your Confocal Imaging with Airyscan.

Your samples tend either to be very small, move very fast or bleach very quickly. Or do all of that at once. To get unbiased data from live cells or other weakly labelled samples, there's no such thing as too much sensitivity, resolution or speed. Each photon of emission light is precious.

Now you can use multicolor samples with any label and get image quality like you’ve never seen before. With Airyscan you are always able to select the optimal acquisition strategy for your sample: Simply decide whether you want to gain 1.7x higher resolution in all three dimensions – resulting in a 5x smaller confocal volume. Or push the sensitivity beyond the limits of all conventional confocals. Or use the increase in signal-to-noise ratio to speed up your image acquisition. The choice is yours.

With Airyscan ZEISS introduces a new concept. Instead of throwing light away at the pinhole, a 32 channel area detector collects all light of an Airy pattern simultaneously. Each detector element functions as a single, very small pinhole. Knowing the beampath and the spatial distribution of each Airy pattern enables a very light efficient imaging: you can now use all of the photons that your objective collected.


Features:

  • Use a true confocal that gives you high sensitivity, improved resolution in x, y and z, and high speed in one system
  • Increase the resolution of your imaging: with Airyscan you resolve 140 nm laterally and 400 nm axially, at 488 nm
  • In the optional Virtual Pinhole Mode, you can decide even after the acquisition, which pinhole size best suits your application
  • Perform gentle imaging of your samples, thanks to the homogeneous illumination with linear scanning, combined with a sensitive detection infrastructure
  • Working with identical pixel times and continuous scanner monitoring, you perform quantitative imaging at all speeds and scan modes
  • Get robust and reliable results, even from your most demanding single molecule imaging and analysis
  • Save time on investigations into localization and interaction of proteins that require multiple fluorescent labels: You collect all these signals in one go
  • Perform simultaneous spectral detection in a single scan with the highest number of descanned or non descanned channels – including GaAsP technology
  • Take full advantage of large fields of view and the highest speed of any linear scanning confocal – up to 13 fps
