A next generation confocal for fast and gentle 4D imaging.
The Zeiss LSM 980 with Airyscan 2 confocal microscope at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute is one of the first available in the world. The new Airyscan detector module with the Definite Focus.2 and Z-Piezo drive offers unrivalled flexibility in fast, high resolution live cell imaging in a familiar confocal setup.
The system is compatible with most sample holders and contains all necessary accessories for environmental control, for example, CO2, humidity and temperature control.
