New Multiplex mode for ZEISS Airyscan 2 enables fast and gentle confocal microscopy
ZEISS LSM 9 family for life sciences research introduced
The Multiplex mode is available for the whole ZEISS LSM 9 family: ZEISS LSM 980 is the flexible research platform with complementary multiphoton and superresolution capabilities. ZEISS LSM 900 is a very compact system that delivers image quality without complexity.
ZEISS LSM 980
The new ZEISS LSM 980 with Airyscan 2 is the ideal research platform for confocal 4D imaging. The entire beam path is optimized for simultaneous spectral detection of multiple weak labels with the highest light efficiency. Researchers benefit from the full flexibility of a point scanning confocal and the speed and gentleness of the sensitive ZEISS Airyscan 2 detector. The new Multiplex mode combines an elongated excitation laser spot and parallel pixel readout of this area detector. This allows acquiring up to eight image lines in a single sweep. Users can gently image larger fields of view with superresolution in shorter acquisition times than ever before.
ZEISS LSM 900
ZEISS LSM 900 with Airyscan 2 is a very compact confocal microscope for high-end imaging. This system has a genuinely small footprint, concentrating on the essence of a confocal and leaving out needless complexity. It fits easily into labs or imaging facilities and is optimized for ease of use. ZEISS LSM 900 can be combined with ZEISS Celldiscoverer 7 for automated confocal imaging with high efficiency.
The Multiplex mode
The new Multiplex mode provides more options to fit imaging speeds and resolution to experimental needs. It uses knowledge about the shape of the excitation laser spot and the location of single area detector elements within the ZEISS Airyscan 2 detector to extract more spatial information – even during parallel pixel readout. This allows bigger steps to be taken when sweeping the excitation laser over the field of view, improving achievable acquisition speeds. In fact, the large amount of spatial information captured in the pinhole plane allows the reconstruction of a final image with better resolution than the acquisition sampling.
