Laser Caption Microdissection System
Applied Biosystems ArcturusXT
The Applied Biosystems ArcturusXT is a microdissection system (LCM) that uses UV and IR lasers to capture the isolated cell without changing morphology or integrity of a biological tissue. The LCM technique can be used on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) sections. Frozen sections of tissue and cytological specimens are also suitable for laser microdissection. The LCM enables a wide range of applications ranging from single-cell isolation to large biopsy extractions. LCM is currently only offered as a service by the CMCI - to be performed by the microscopy specialist.
