Benefits of the Leica SP5 resonance confocal

Motorised stage gives multi-point visiting and tile scanning capabilities.

The resonance scanner allows imaging of rapidly moving biology and can also be used to reduce phototoxicity and photobleaching on live samples.

The detectors allow spectrophotometric analysis of your samples.
