A fully computer controlled microdissection system built on a Zeiss Axiovert fluorescence microscope stand. Tissue sections are placed on special membrane coated slides. Areas for microdissection are selected on a computer monitor using various drawing tools after which microdissection occurs. The special membrane plus tissue is cut through in the selected areas using a nitrogen UV laser and areas are lifted from the slide into a waiting receptacle (Eppendorf tube) through a laser catapulting method.
