Leica SP8 white light inverted confocal

Technical spec and photo of the Leica SP8 WL inverted confocal microscope

Confocal microscopes are ideal for imaging multi-labelled fluorescent samples up to around 100 microns in depth.

The white light (WL) laser ranges from 470nm to 670nm and up to 8 wavelengths can be simultaneously selected. This, together with the spectral detection, allows for easy optimisation of multicolour imaging set-ups.
