Zeiss P.A.L.M. LCM

    Laser-capture microsdissection (LCM) uses laser beams to extract biological material of interest out of a tissue specimens. The Zeiss PALM microdissection device employs a focused beam to cut the desired material, and a defocused beam to catapult the sample into the cap of a sample tube. Cutting accuracy of less than 1 µm can be achieved.
    The source material can be placed on a normal objective glass slide or on a membrane slidE. The system can be used with frozen or paraffin-embedded tissue samples, single cells, and even single chromosomes. The microscope is equipped with a fluorescence system and has a video camera to assist visualization.
    Adhesive caps and Zeiss PALM membrane slides can be purchased from the CIC.
