Lattice Filter Spectra
The SP5 was donated by the Cell Biology Department.
Use of the SP5 is restricted to members of labs whose principle investigator has a faculty appointment in the Department of Cell Biology.
Point Scanning Confocal
The Leica SP5 is a point scanning confocal: it increases contrast in thicker specimens by using a pinhole to reject out of focus fluorescence.
The Leica SP detector has complete flexibility in detection spectra , allowing you to select the appropriate emission bandwidth for your particular fluorophore.
The SP detector can be used to collect the full spectral emission profile of your sample, allowing applications such as linear unmoving.
