The Zeiss LSM 780 is mounted on a fully motorized AxioObserver Z1 inverted microscope stand.  The LSM 780 has a 32 channel GaAsP detector for capturing spectral information for linear unmixing. The stage is motorized in X,Y to mark positions or acquire images of areas larger than the field of view through tiling of individual image stacks.

For live-cell imaging, an optional stage-top incubator is available to control temperature and atmosphere and a Definite Focus attachment compensates for Z-drifts during timelapse imaging.
