Laser microdissection enables the user to isolate areas of tissue, or even single cells, from FFPE (formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded) or frozen tissue sections. The LMD7 comes with a high-quality Leica microscope and camera, and allows for either brightfield or fluorescent imaging. Laser-microdissected tissue is very suitable for downstream genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic or metabolomic analyses.

Key features:

  • High-quality Leica microscope
  • High powered laser (cuts through almost “everything”)
  • Gravity-assisted tissue isolation
  • Four air-objectives with 5x, 10x, 40x and 63x magnification
  • Fluorescence filters (RGB and Cy5)
  • Several different collection alternatives (tube caps, 96-well plates, 8/12-tube strips)
  • User-friendly software
