Enhanced sensitivity and image quality
Dual-camera ultra-large field of view
What you can see
X-Light V3 is the next generation of X-Light spinning disk confocal series.
It relies on the cutting-edge technology, advanced optical design approach and engineering solutions developed by CrestOptics to meet the very high-end specifications required by most of the modern fluorescence microscopy applications.
The spinning disk design together with the careful design of the optical layout enhances sensitivity and image clarity.
The first confocal unit which allows dual camera imaging at the full field of view of 25 mm on both cameras.
V3 Features insight
Microlenses approach makes the illumination field highly homogeneous on large fields of view.
A unique plug-and-play design solution allows you to choose and change the illumination size to match the most common camera formats. If needed it is possible to shrink the illumination on smaller areas.
Smaller areas mean higher power density, higher efficiency and higher speed
X-Light Spinning Disk
The 50 um spinning disk is available in two different versions: standard spacing and larger spacing.
Standard X-Light spinning disk is the excellent compromise between brightness, confocality and image quality. The version with larger spacing has been designed to enhance even more the image quality and sectioning in thicker specimens thanks to the large reduction of crosstalk between pinholes.

A software controlled square iris in front of the spinning disk, with variable aperture, can be used to screen light and preserve the surrounding area of the sample out of the region of interest.
Sealed Spinning disk box
This unique new feature makes the Spinning disk fully isolated and protected from environmental dust and prevents undesired artifacts related to the presence of small dust particles on the Spinning disk surface
Spinning disk synchronization
To manage very high-speed imaging, hundreds of fps, V3 provides as a standard feature a synchronization signal from the spinning disk to the camera.
A good way to make a solid quantitative analysis of very fast dynamics
Dual color, dual imaging, still wider
The first confocal unit which allows dual-camera imaging at the maximum field of view of 25 mm…on both cameras.
External regulations allow to easily align the second camera with the first one
Evolution through compatibility
