Laser microdissection.The process of laser microdissection coupled to laser pressure catapulting (LMPC) for collecting vascular bundles from 30 μm thick cross sections obtained after freezing and cryosectioning A. thaliana stems. (a) Vascular bundles are selected on the computer screen. (b) The laser beam cuts along the markings. (c) The cut cells of interest are catapulted off the slide by a defocused laser pulse and (d) are collected into a cap of a microfuge tube.
