About Us

Following Dino Sharma’s 14 years with the Bio-Rad Inc. Microscopy Division and then 8 years of continued global service and technical support at Carl Zeiss Microscopy GmbH, finally culminating in the formal EOS (End of Support) of the Bio-Rad LSM products by Carl Zeiss AG, it was clear that there was still a need to provide top level service, support and solutions for the Bio-Rad Cell Science (aka Microscience and latterly Carl Zeiss Cell Science Ltd) LSM range of confocal and multi-photon instruments.

As a result Dino Sharma decided to fill this gap in the market and provide service and support directly and independently to former Bio-Rad MRC and Radiance LSM instrument owners. And so LSM Technical Services Ltd was formed.

Why choose LSM Technical Services Ltd?

With over 20 years of experience in the Laser Scanning Microscopy technology, having worked in manufacturing, R&D (Research and Development), international technical support and service and LSM product marketing, Dino has a wealth of knowledge and experience. Before joining the emerging LSM industry, Dino worked within the opti-mechanical and microsurgical instrument inudustries. With this background LSM Technical Services Ltd can offer an unrivalled level of knowledge and expertise in laser scanning microscopy and instrumentation, especially with Radiance and MRC LSM technologies and can therefore provide expert, efficient and cost effective services and solutions.

You may find that there are alternative service providers. However, it is worth emphasising that LSM Techincal Services Ltd is the ONLY Carl Zeiss AG authorised and recommended third party service provider for Bio-Rad/Cell Science LSM and Confocal Instruments. Additionally, any service technicians that have been 'officially' trained, will have been trained by Dino Sharma or a member of his former Bio-Rad International Technical Support team.


With the most comprehensive stock of spare parts, LSM Technical Services can offer a range of solutions to suit every budget.

LSM Technical Services Ltd has a dedicated workshop for experimental system set-ups, with a variety of fully functioning LSM imaging and microscope equipment, including LSM systems, Microscopes (both inverted and upright) and a 2m x 1.5m optical bench/vibration isolation table.
