Florescent Dissecting

More Information


The Leica MZ FLIII fluorescence stereomicroscope offers not only a 3D image but also, compared with a classical microscope at any given magnification, a larger panoramic field of view, more intense fluorescence, and longer working distances. These advantages make it possible to manipulate, sort and process specimens. Just one instrument is enough for carrying out time-consuming preparation work, embedding, rubbing down or cutting. With a combination of green-fluorescent protein (GFP, see box) and the Leica MZ FLIII fluorescence stereomicroscope, living objects can now be observed spatially in large fields of view; the long working distances enable them to be manipulated.

Key Features
