Leica Laser MicroDissection Scope (LMD 6500)
The LMD6500 is ideal for standard laser microdissection applications, e.g. reliable single cell or tumor isolation from soft tissue sections. It’s direct real-time laser cutting with “Draw and Cut” tissue ablation mode enables user to collect interested sample directly from a special coated, energy absorbing glass slide. Laser microdissected samples can be collected by gravity to 0.2 ml (ID = 4.6 mm) or 0.5 ml (ID = 7.0 mm) PCR tubes without contamination. The field of view at 5x magnification is 1.6 mm x 1.2 mm.
