Welcome to AlphaMetrix' Lasercapture Microdesection Section


Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) is the method of choice for thousands of researchers worldwide. Viability of the IR laser-enabled Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) technique has been shown for a variety of different cell types. The procedure is remarkably simple and robust and available exclusively with Arcturus LCM instruments from LifeTechnologies.

Any Arcturus LCM system can be used. This LCM method is extraordinarily gentle and ideal for microdissection of single cells or small numbers of cells. The ArcturusXT microdissection instruments combine LCM and UV laser cutting for ultimate microdissection flexibility.
