New: Zeiss LSM 880 Airyscan

The undefinedZeiss LSM 880 Airyscan is our latest inverted confocal microscope system. Equipped with the so-called Airyscan detector and the Fast Extension it combines in a unique way high acquisition speed, high sensitivity and high resolution. In super-resolution mode, you can achieve a resolution of 140 nm laterally and 400 nm axially as well as 4-8 times better SNR (compared to GaAsP detectors). In "Fast mode" it delivers 27 frames per second at a resolution of 480x480 pixels.
