LSM 800 gives you the benefit of increased scanning speeds so you can resolve those fast movements of labeled proteins that demand equally fast scanning. At an image size of 512 × 512 pixels you will be capturing events with up to 8 frames per second. Your LSM 800 is constantly monitoring and calibrating the scanner position so you can count on a stable and even field of view with constant pixel times across the whole observation area. This patented linear scanning regime gives you a constant signal-to-noise level and uniform exposure by the illuminating laser throughout the scanned area, including your manipulated regions of interest. With LSM 800 you will be using more than 80% of the scanning time for data acquisition. Signal-to noise improves by about 29% compared to sine scanning systems. Your experiments will always deliver quantitative data. Likewise, you can adapt the scan field at any time by panning or cropping it, and rotating it freely to best suit the geometry of your sample.
