Leica SP8 Navigator

Confocal microscope for the multidimensional acquisition of samples. With the Lightning and Navigator packages. The first allows the acquisition of higher resolution images by automation of microscope settings for on the fly or subsequent deconvolution of images. The second package allows for easy navigation through samples in diverse sample holders and for the setting and acquisition of complex multidimensional acquisitions.
