Leica SPi 8 Super-Resolution gSTED Inverted Confocal Microscope
The Leica 3D gSTED system achieves resolution below the diffraction limit in the lateral, and axial directions.
There are 3 gSTED continuous wave lasers at 592 nm (CW), 660 nm (CW) and 775 nm (pulsing laser) which allow the use of fluorophores From 470 to 670 nm in super-resolution.
