Original Press Release:
Leica Microsystems Presents the First Automated Immunogold Labeling System, the Leica EM IGL
Leica Microsystems is pleased to introduce a new product to the biomedical research marketplace, the Leica EM IGL automated Immunogold Labeling system. This product is uniquely designed to efficiently address the needs of researchers who want to visualize specific proteins within cells.
Preparing tissue and cell samples accurately is essential for optimum TEM image quality. The current range of immunogold labeling methods involves many time-consuming steps that employ complicated manual procedures. This new automated system, unique to Leica, eliminates the need for tedious manual labeling of grids and greatly improves reproducibility of the results.
The innovative Leica EM IGL automatically applies reagents to ultra-thin sections, held on grids in a humidity-controlled environment, using one of 99 possible preset programs.
The new Leica EM IGL saves a great deal of time and improves accuracy, as well. The EM IGL only requires thirty minutes set up time, which frees the researcher for other laboratory responsibilities.
