LSM 5 PASCAL scan module utilizes two independent galvo scanning mirrors to obtain large scan fields and high resolution images up to 2,048 x 2,048 pixels. This module also has two confocal channels and one transmitted light channel, all with highly sensitive photomultiplier detectors. All moving components of the scan module, such as emission filter wheels, main and secondary dichroic beam splitters, the pinhole and mechanical attenuators for each laser line, are computer controlled. Other features include flexible scan strategies for 3D and time series imaging, continuously adjustable pinhole for optimum Z resolution, precisely controllable laser intensities to protect specimens, and multifluorescence imaging without cross talk between channels.
