Description

To guarantee each laboratory greater productivity without compromising the data quality, CrestOptics has created the X-Light V2, the most accessible spinning disk solution for fast and gentle confocal imaging.

The X-light V2 is a truly enabling technology where the high-performance is combined with the application fexibility and a universal compatibility with any upright and inverted microscopes with a camera port.

The X-light V2 enables researchers to routinely perform challenging live-imaging experiments for extended periods of time. The highest spinning disk rotation on the market allows to follow ultra-fast cell dynamics with an acquisition speed of over 1000 fps on full FOV.

The multi-beam spinning method offers not only high-speed imaging but signicantly reduced photo bleaching and phototoxicity. This gentle illumination combined with advanced optical sectioning makes the X- light V2 the standard tool for 3D live cell imaging.

Technical Features

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: 15.000 rpm rotation speed for artefact-free high speed acquisitions
Tailor-made disks: 50 um pinholes with two different pinole spacing. High throughput and custom pattern disks available on demand
Field of view: 25 mm
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
