The Facility Line STED microscope from Abberior Instruments has four lasers for excitation (405, 488, 561, 640 nm) as well as one pulsed STED laser (775 nm). Patented adaptive illumination methods enable live-cell imaging with drastically reduced photobleaching and phototoxicity. FLIM capabilities available.
