Laser Capture Microdissection Facility

LCM System
Pixel II Laser Capture Microscope System


The Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) is a university-wide core facility on the campus of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, TN.

LCM optimizes the precision measurements of DNA, mRNA, or protein by providing cell samples collected under a microscope. These cells can be identified and collected from tissue sections (stained or unstained), blood smears, or cell cultures.

There is an overview of the LCM at the LifeTech website.  external link icon New users may find the Quick guide,  PDF icon Tips for Fluorescence,  PDF icon and supply list  PDF icon useful.
