Cortical organoid. MIP of a large image. Dual channel and Z stack acquisition. 20x Air.

CICERO spinning disk solution delivers fast image acquisition speed (15K rpm) and sensitivity, easily enabling live cell imaging and large-scale 3D object imaging. Due to its large field of view (up to 22mm FOV), CICERO offers a minimal scanning process and can capture large samples in a single frame.

CICERO is a reliable and flexible solution compatible with both LED and Laser as illumination sources. Moreover, the wide spectral range enables a large variety of applications. For this, CICERO allows to address both entry-level and challenging applications.
