-{{  :airyscan_beampath.png?400}} The Zeiss LSM 880 with Airyscan is a [[https://​imm.medicina.ulisboa.pt/​facility/​bioimaging/​lib/​exe/​fetch.php?​media=confocal.png|confocal ​point-scanning microscope]] able to generate high-resolution three-dimensional images of thick specimens with high sensitivity,​ high speed and low photodamage. It is an inverted microscope especially suitable for live cell imaging and photobleaching experiments,​ equipped with a large cage incubator and a stage top incubator for temperature control and CO2 supply and with Definite Focus for hardware focus control during long time-lapse acquisitions. The stage is motorized and furthermore equipped with a piezo for Z displacement so fast 4D imaging is possible in multiple stage positions. Its [[http://​www.zeiss.com/​content/​dam/​Microscopy/​Products/​laser-scan/​LSM%20880/​zeiss-lsm880-airyscan-principle-672.jpg|Airyscan]] 32 channel area detector is able to collect all light from an Airy pattern simultaneously,​ allowing for increased resolution (140 nm laterally and 400 nm axially, at 488 nm). It can also be used in [[https://​www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=ln6VUmLzLLc|Fast Mode]], which enables parallel excitation and detection of four image pixels. The result is a speed improvement by a factor of four, while maintaining the sensitivity of Airyscan and 1.5x resolution improvement. Its scanning unit further includes two PMT detectors (one of them cooled) as well as a GaAsP detector for increased sensitivity (45% QE compared to ~25% QE for conventional PMT). It is equipped with lasers from violet to far red (405, 458, 488, 514, 561, 594 and 633 nm excitation wavelengths). ​ +{{  :confocal_pinhole.png?350}} The Zeiss LSM 880 with Airyscan is a point-scanning ​confocal ​microscope able to generate high-resolution three-dimensional images of thick specimens with high sensitivity,​ high speed and low photodamage.

With this system you can perform optical sectioning of fluorescent samples which are too thick for a widefield system such as the [[zeiss_cell_observer|Zeiss Cell Observer]]. Image resolution with Airyscan is higher than the [[zeiss_lsm_710|Zeiss LSM 710]] and detection sensitivity is also higher than the spinning disks [[3i_marianas_sdc|3i Marianas SDC]] and [[zeiss_cell_observer_sd|Zeiss Cell Observer SD]]. If your personal computer cannot handle all the data you collected, check out the [[colossus|Colossus]].
