New high-end LCM unit

A high-end laser capture microdissection (LCM) unit has been installed at the TCDM premises at the Institute of Biomedicine. The equipment (AccuLift Yoda LCM System – UV and IR manufactures by Fluidigm) is capable of ultraviolet laser cutting and more sensitive infrared laser capture.  LCM can be done on FFPE sections, frozen sections and cell cultures, and areas for dissection can be identified using brightfield or fluorescence staining.
