Leica Stellaris 8 DIVE

Leica Stellaris

The multiphoton microscope STELLARIS 8 DIVE provides you with flexible multicolor imaging beyond 1 mm in depth for intravital live animal imaging. 

The combination of multiple distinct fluorescent labels is increasingly used to study dynamic interaction and spatial relationships among cells and molecules. The goal is to understand a myriad of complex biological events, such as cellular connectivity, cell phenotyping, protein interaction or co-expression, and co-localization. Scaling up such studies to whole organs or tissues requires suitable large-volume multicolor microscopy methods. DIVE and STELLARIS have now merged to provide you with the power of flexible multicolor multiphoton imaging. Furthermore, you can expand the potential of your experiments with additional label-free imaging capabilities.

Seamlessly integrated into the confocal software interface, STELLARIS 8 DIVE offers the benefits of high speed and excellent navigation so that dynamic processes in complex samples can be studied with ease.
