Leica launches high power laser microdissection system
22 February 2009
The new Leica LMD7000 is a laser microdissection system with a power-adjustable, high precision laser.
For the first time, high laser power and high repetition rates, are
combined within one system.
The laser’s high pulse repetition rates are ideal for the fast
excision of single cells, cell clusters, or thin and soft samples.
Additionally, high laser power allows the dissection of thick or hard

Both the new Leica LMD6500 and LMD7000 laser microdissection systems use
gravity to gently collect the samples. The dissected material, whatever
its size or shape, is collected in a contact-free, contamination-free
manner. No additional procedures are necessary for collection.
The laser beam movement of the Leica LMD7000 and LMD6500 is
controlled by high precision optics, whereas the microscope stage and
the sample are both fixed. This allows precise cutting accuracy at high
magnifications, as well as high cutting speed at low magnifications.
Both are prerequisites to obtain homogeneous material for downstream
analysis and reliable results.
Leica Microsystems’ new intuitive user interface eases everyday
research. Additional consumables, such as a non-fluorescent, glass-like
membrane for all contrast methods, complete the extensive consumables
The new Leica LMD7000 and Leica LMD6500 laser microdissection systems
are suitable for dissecting live cells, single cells, and
specific cell clusters for biomarker research, molecular pathology, and
