Leica SP8 User Guide

The Leica SP8 is an upright laser scanning confocal system configured for large volume (cleared tissue) multiplexed imaging. The SP8 comes equipped with an AOBS tunable detection pathway (3 PMTs and 2 HyD), a white light laser (470nm-670nm), and the Lighting deconvolution module. The HyD detectors offer a "true black" background and are able to gate on fluorescence lifetime (allowing for the in-line reduction of autofluorescence).

The system also contains spectral scanning, three-dimensional (z) acquisition and time-lapse capabilities. A programmable stage allows automated return-to-site and multiple-field stitching. Software includes the Navigator module.
