Use the LS560 Microscope to visualize and capture high resolution widefield images comparable to those from traditional, high-cost microscopes. The LS560 utilizes an LED light source, Semrock filters, advanced optical engineering, and a CMOS sensor to provide near diffraction-limited (theoretical maximum) resolution. 


Powered only by a direct USB computer connection, the LS560 uses the same USB cable to send your photos, time-lapse series, and videos directly to your computer. And its compact size enables working inside challenging locations including incubators , hoods, and environmental chambers. 


It is compatible with microplates, slides, flasks, dishes, microfluidic chips, custom labware. 

The LS560 utilizes a Semrock Brightline®Basic filter set optimized for FITC and other similar fluorophores. The 3-filter set is comprised of 1 excitation filter, 1 emission filter, and 1 beam-splitting filter. The LS560 contains a high sensitivity monochrome CMOS sensor with a 1700×1700 pixel image. Because the emission filter is limited to 508-552 nanometers, brightfield images are monochromatic. 

Detects green fluorophores, including FITC, Fluo-4 and GFP


The new LS560 has an improved camera and optics plus a C-mount compared to the previous LS520 model, plus the accessible deck and improved phase contrast (optional) introduced in the LS520.
