-The Zeiss LSM 7 Live //confocal line-scanning microscope//​ is a fast imaging system able to analyze high-speed processes with a time resolution of just a few microseconds. It is an upright microscope equipped with water dipping objectives specially suited for live samples in aqueous media. The scanning unit uses a laser beam with a rectangular cross-section to [[http://​www.nature.com/​nmeth/​journal/​v3/​n11/​thumbs/​nmeth971-F2.jpg|illuminate a whole line in the sample]], instead of a single point. This makes image acquisition by its array CCD detectors faster than conventional PMT light detection but it also lowers the Z-resolution due to the usage of slits instead of conventional pinholes. Note that the system is equipped with two lasers (488 and 561 nm) but dual color imaging is not advised since there are no bandpass filters in the system (channel crosstalk is likely to occur). A UV laser controlled by galvanometric mirrors is available for precise ablation in user-defined regions of interest. The spatial resolution of this system is not as high as a //​point-scanning confocal system// such as the [[zeiss_lsm_880|Zeiss LSM 880]] or [[zeiss_lsm_710|Zeiss LSM 710]] but it is much faster than these two systems, achieving scanning speeds which may be even higher than the [[3i_marianas_sdc|3i Marianas SDC]] spinning disk if the acquisition is performed only in a few lines.
