The SP8 is both a point scanning confocal and 3X STED Super-resolution microscope. The SP8 includes a super-supercontinuum white-light laser for fluorescent excitation from 470nm to 670nm, a separate 405nm diode laser, and 3 lasers (592nm/660nm/775nm) for performing 3 color super-resolution STED. The unit is equipped with 3 PMTs and 2 high-sensitive HyD detectors for image collection. Additional features include a motorized stage, resonant scanner, fluorescence spectral detection and super Z-galvo stage/tokei hit insert for live cell imaging. Objective lens 10x, 20x, 40x, 63x, and 100x.
