Leica TCS SP


support The Leica functions as a 3-colour, UV and visible confocal microscope in one system, utilizing fiber coupled UV, VIS and IR lasers (allowing rapid switching between laser-firing). There is even a “Design-a-filter” application for ultimate flexibility, or new dyes and difficult dye combinations, and allows easy wavelength selection from pre-programmed spectra of all popular dyes.


The excitation wavelengths commonly used are:

Wavelength (nm 543 488 366 458 190-370
Dye TRITC FITC Cy5 GFP DAPI
