Laser microdissection makes it possible to isolate and collect cells within tissues or cell cultures according to their phenotypic or functional characteristics by means of microscopic visual inspection.
This technique is necessary to study specific, targeted, microscopically visible cell populations within heterogeneous tissue.
The platform is equipped with an automated laser microdissector from PALM version 4 (Zeiss) coupled with fluorescence.
The system works with a pulsed UV laser that allows the cells of interest to be cut with high precision by photoablation of the adjacent tissue.
This system does not require any contact between the sample and the collecting tube, thus limiting the risk of contamination for molecular analysis.
Several regions of interest can be microdissected into an automated operation, and gathered into a cap that will be used for biomolecular extraction.
