The laser capture microscope uses a UV laser to first microdissect tissue sections and then catapult the dissected piece of tissue into an Eppendorf tube.
The laser capture microscope uses a UV laser to first microdissect tissue sections and then catapult the dissected piece of tissue into an Eppendorf tube. The UV wavelength of the laser is too long to damage polynucleotides. The same system is also fitted with an infra-red laser that acts as optical tweezers for the manipulation of single cells and small particles. The system is fitted to a Zeiss inverted fluorescence microscope.
