Confocal laser scanning microscopy is used in many different fields of research nowadays. Therefore, high spatial resolution is required as well as high temporal resolution. Further, the quality of the resulting images has to be considered. Doing imaging with laser scanning microscopes, the balance between spatial resolution, speed and signal-to-noise ratio has to be defined for every specimen and experiment individually. Special adaptations to standard laser scanning microscopes improve the efficiency of the Leica TCS SP2 and Leica TCS SP2 RS for high-resolution low-noise imaging. Here, we want to report from the acousto-optical beam splitter, the resonant K-scanner and new objectives.
