Scitech announces the launch of microscopy systems from Andor Technology.
Revolution WD and XD microscopy systems
Part of Andor’s portfolio of flexible system solutions, the Revolution WD and XD systems are focused on live cell confocal imaging. Offering confocal imaging for a broad range of samples, Revolution WD provides the flexibility to suit the needs of core facilities, adding a huge field of views for large specimens such as neuronal slices or whole organisms such as Drosophila and Zebrafish, with improved performance for imaging deep into samples for stunning 3D image sets.
The Revolution XD suits the needs of researchers with single cell models or interested in ultra-fast cell physiology such as calcium imaging.
Revolution DSD microscopy systems
The second generation of the innovative but simple laser-free confocal device, Revolution DSD2 adds a larger field of view and improved optical performance, easily competing in image quality with more expensive laser scanning confocals. With the ability to fit onto most fluorescence microscopes and even macroscopes, Revolution DSD offers greater versatility. Using the latest generation system, confocal imaging can be included as a routine technique in the lab for fixed or live samples in large as well as small sizes.
Mosaic digital illumination
Mosaic# is used to target light during live cell studies for techniques such as optogenetics, photoactivation, uncaging and photobleaching. Designed to assist with better understanding of cellular dynamics, Mosaic# can target multiple regions simultaneously, and store and run complex pattern sequences, making it perfect for the currently trending application of optophysiology. Mosaic can be used to control light sensitive proteins to mimic and understand cell physiology.
Providing a flexible and field-proven tool for photo-manipulation, MicroPoint uses a pulsed nitrogen laser with tuneable dyes for ablation, bleaching, activation and uncaging capabilities over a wavelength range of 365 to 656 nm. MicroPoint finds application in biological and industrial fields ranging from DNA damage to marking silicon wafers.
Borealis illumination technology
Taking the existing world-class spinning disk technology from Yokogawa and pushing it to the next level, the patented Borealis system employs alternative light input solutions to improve light throughput, delivers better uniformity, and resolves axial distortion, resulting in perfect image quality for accurate quantitative analysis, high fidelity 3D reproduction and seamless image montaging.
