Leica Microsystems has released its new high resolution spectral confocal system Leica TCS SPE.
True spectral detection across the full emission range makes this system unique in its class of small and compact confocal microscopes.
Optimal resolution is ensured by four solid state lasers from 488 to 635 nm, with a 405 nm option for nuclear staining. The Leica TCS SPE utilizes the brand new Leica ACS (Advanced Correction System) technology for perfect colocalization and maximum transmission.
The Leica TCS SPE requires minimal training and first results are achieved immediately, even by confocal newcomers. In core imaging facilities, the TCS SPE serves as an expertly designed system to increase capacity and to relieve the demands on high end confocal systems.
The Leica TCS SPE is highly integrated, very compact and robust and with its small footprint and standard room requirements the system will fit into any laboratory. Its supply unit is no bigger than a standard PC and provides power, up to four lasers, an integrated PC, and a DVD-drive.
Optimally selected long-life components and robust technology drastically reduce the cost of ownership whilst still providing spectacular confocal images.
