Arcturus PixCell II Laser Capture Microdissection Microscope

SAM_5033Laser capture microdissection (LCM) is a technique that provides a simple method to obtain targeted cells from a multi-cell population.   The Arcturus (PXL-200) PixCell II LCM, built around an Olympus IX50 inverted microscope, uses a near-infrared diode laser and a CapSure® Macro/HS LCM Cap to capture target cells.  When the laser is fired, dimples are created in the cap.  These dimples wet a matrix which attaches to a targeted cell, which can be lifted off the glass slide without taking other cells around it.  Once the cells are captured they can be used for various experiments such as amplification of DNA or RNA from the isolated cell(s) for analyses.  During microdissection, the laser never touches or damages any of the cells.  This Arcturus LCM microscope is in excellent condition, has been fully tested by our Scientific Research staff, and comes with a warranty.
