Confocal Laser Scanning & STED Microscope: Leica - Stellaris 8 (2020/21)

The Leica Stellaris 8 is a high end confocal microscope equipped with a 775 nm laser for STED super resolution microscopy. Since it does not have a CO2 incubator, it is best equipped for the confocal and super resolution imaging of fixed samples and live non mammalian cells such as from Drosophila melanogaster.
