Leica SP8 Confocal/Multi-Photon Microscope

Media Component
Leica SP8

The Leica SP8 is a dual purpose visible confocal microscope and multi-photon on a single platform. The confocal microscope is equipped with 4 detectors, one of which is a highly sensitive hybrid GAsP/APD (HyD) for low light imaging. It has visible laser lines at 458nm, 488nm, 514nm, 561nm and 633nm.

The Leica SP8 is also a multi-photon microscope that can utilize the internal detectors from the visible confocal as well as two external NDD detectors for direct detection. The microscope is an upright, fixed stage system that is ideal for whole animal imaging as well as traditional slide mounts. It shares the Coherent Chameleon TiS NIR laser with the Zeiss LSM 7 MP microscope.
