Use the LS560 Microscope to visualize and capture high resolution widefield images comparable to those from traditional, high-cost microscopes. The LS560 utilizes an LED light source, Semrock filters, advanced optical engineering, and a CMOS sensor to provide near diffraction-limited (theoretical maximum) resolution. Powered only by a direct USB computer connection, the LS560 uses the same USB cable to send your photos, time-lapse series, and videos directly to your computer. And its compact size enables working inside challenging locations including incubators , hoods, and environmental chambers.

The new LS560 has an improved camera and optics plus a C-mount compared to the previous LS520 model, plus the accessible deck and improved phase contrast (optional) introduced in the LS520.

Features and Benefits:

  • Alpha-tubulin in BPAE cells imaged by LS560
  • Digital inverted microscope compatible with microplates, slides, flasks, dishes, microfluidic chips, custom labware
  • Compact design and environmentally rugged; use in incubators, hoods, and environmental chambers over months
  • Comes with Lumaview software for capture of images, time-lapse series, and live video
  • Simple USB connection to your computer provides power and control
  • Excellent resolution in ambient lighting conditions or with Phase Contrast Accessory
  • Detects green fluorophores, including FITC, Fluo-4 and GFP
    Includes accessible deck for easy exchange of objectives
  • Optional Phase Contrast Accessory (Olympus condenser) for imaging of unstained samples
  • The LS560 utilizes a Semrock Brightline Basic filter set optimized for FITC and other similar fluorophores. The 3-filter set is comprised of 1 excitation filter, 1 emission filter, and 1 beam-splitting filter. The LS560 contains a high sensitivity monochrome CMOS sensor with a 1700×1700 pixel image. Because the emission filter is limited to 508-552 nanometers, brightfield images are monochromatic.
