Leica upright LMD 7


Laser-microdissection (LMD) is a method to isolate cells, single cells, even sub-cellular moieties, under direct microscopic visualization. Thus, LCM can enrich and purify specific targets of interest for downstream applications such as DNA genotyping, RNA-SEQ, cDNA library generation, proteomics, or for cell cloning.
