Leica launches ground-breaking microscope at trade show
9 April 2008 00:00 in Scientific
Leica Microsystems presented the world's first super-zoom confocal microscope at an industry show last week.
The Leica TCS LSI was one of the highlights of Analytica 2008 the world's biggest trade show for solutions in the laboratory technology and life-science sectors.
Its automated zoom allows seamless magnification change from overview to detail with free 3D navigation through the sample from embryo to cell, from cell to genome.
This means that for the first time it is now possible to identify influences of genetic defects on the living model organism, or to study in vivo the development from a cell to the entire organism in every detail.
Leica released its TCS SP5 X super continuum confocal system last month, providing freedom and flexibility which were previously unattainable in fluorescence microscopy.
Analytica 2008 is held in Munich every year and preparations for an Analytica China trade show are currently underway for this September.
