New Leica Microsystems Reference Site is the First of its Kind in Israel

Leica Microsystems announced a new collaboration with the Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan, Israel. T e new agreement aims to promote and establish Bar-Ilan as a new reference site for Leica products and workfl ows. T e collaboration establishes state- of-the-art microscopy at the faculty, including several confocal microscopes. Amongst them is a Leica TCS SP8 STED 3X super- resolution system, enabling researchers to see beyond the limits of conventional microscopy techniques.
