The Zeiss Palm MicrobeamTM system is used for intelligent selection
and collection of clustered or single cells, chromosome spreads
and tissue sections to be able to get the purest of samples for
downstream analysis or live culture with no mechanical contact.
Distinguishing by means of fluorescent markers and normal histological
staining methods gives you the power to purify samples by marking
samples according to the molecule of choice.
The process harnesses a highly focussed N2 laser (337nm) which is
away from the absorption peaks of protein and DNA (256nm and 280nm
respectively) so no damage will occur to molecules or cells to be
Advantages to your research will be the ability to refine the samples
put through analysis so that signals are cleaner and more relevant
to the results needed.

Costs are calculated on a project by project basis to incorporate
consumables used. Specific Consumables are required for use with
this system and pricing depends on the needs of the work involved.
