From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Laser capture microdissection (LCM), also called microdissection, laser microdissection (LMD), or laser-assisted microdissection (LMD or LAM), is a method for isolating specific cells of interest from microscopic regions of tissue/cells/organisms[1][2] (dissection on a microscopic scale with the help of a laser).
