Technical Specifications

Spectral range (confocal/widefield): excitation: 400-750 nm; emission: 400-850 nm
Software controlled bypass mode: widefield to confocal
Fastest spinning disk in the market: 20.000 rpm rotation speed for artefact-free imaging in the kHz range
Tailor-made disks: single and dual-pattern options available, including spiral patterns for high throughput. Custom pattern disks available on demand
Axial Resolution (FWHM): ~600 nm (High NA 1.4)
Exchangeable, synchronized and sealed: the disk box is one of the most versatile features of the new V3. Dust protection and synchronization signals out to the camera make it reliable and faster. Perfect for high speed acquisitions
Lateral Resolution (FWHM): ~230 nm (High NA 1.4) diffraction limited
Field of view: 18 mm
Filter wheels: 3-positions manual cleanup filter wheel, 5-positions dichroic filter wheel, 8-positions emission filter wheel. Different configurations available on demand
