ZEISS Webinar: Recent Advances & Applications of Point Laser Scanning Confocal Microscopy for Cellular and Sub-cellular Imaging

October 5, 2021 | Tuesday | 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM IST


The confocal Laser Scanning Microscope (CLSM) is an established technique for obtaining depth selective high resolution optical images for reconstructing 3D cellular and sub-cellular imaging. Optimized simultaneous spectral detection of multiple weak labels with the highest light efficiency, 3D imaging combined with low phototoxicity and high speed has increased the scope of CLSM in wide biological applications.

Major applications of confocal microscopy in the biological sciences include:

  • Imaging spatial distribution of spatial macromolecules in either fixed or living cells
  • The measurement of physiological events in living cells
  • Advantage of maintaining morphology so that cellular location can be correlated with signal intensity
  • High resolution to image intracellular structures with sufficient detail in X-Y-Z.
  • LSM technology combined with SR technique is a perfect fit for fixed and live cell imaging
  • Airyscan Multiplex SR technology with improved speed, sensitivity and resolution for enhanced cellular imaging
  • Expand your spectral range with NIR imaging
