Life Science Solutions


Laser scanning microscopy is used in biological research to obtain high-resolution, high-contrast imagery of a sample. Laser microscopes can scan samples point by point, resulting in optical sectioning that can be used to construct precise 3D imagery.
Olympus laser scanning microscopes are designed with a large range of imaging modalities to meet some of the most difficult challenges in the life sciences. Our laser scanning microscopes offer high sensitivity and speed, enabling live cell imaging alongside deep tissue observation. Choose from a range of laser microscope frames suited to a variety of life science applications, from cancer research and stem cell research to developmental biology and slide imaging.

Laser Scanning Microscope FAQs

What are the uses of a laser scanning microscope?

Laser scanning microscopes are used in life science research to understand intra- and intercellular processes that contribute to overall tissue function. Due to their inherent ability to optically section light, laser scanning microscopes enable accurate high resolution volumetric imaging of thick tissue specimens, without the need to physically section the sample.

How do laser scanning confocal microscopes work?

A laser scanning confocal microscope uses a pair of mirrors to direct a laser beam across a field of view. The microscope’s objective then focuses this light on the sample. The photons emitted from the fluorophores in the sample located at the focus point are collected by the objective and relayed back through the scanner, passing through a pinhole that is conjugate to the objective focal plane, which causes only the photons in focus to be detected by the photomultiplier tube. By imaging the photons at each point of the laser position, an image can be reconstructed pixel by pixel.

What is the minimum resolution of Olympus’ laser scanning microscopes?

Through improved detection, specific hardware settings, optimized confocal aperture diameter, and signal processing, Olympus created a super resolution module with improved contrast that can be applied to many different samples types and fluorophores. Olympus’ unique and proprietary FV-OSR super resolution technology realizes lateral (X-Y) resolution down to 120 nm.
