Scitech presents the X-Light V3 spinning disk confocal by Crest Optics, engineered
to meet the high-end specifications of modern fluorescence microscopy
The X-Light V3 is the first confocal unit to allow for dual camera
imaging at the full field of view of 25mm on both cameras. It can break down background
fluorescence, is extremely efficient and homogeneous in illuminating a large
field of view in single and dual-camera modes, and also very flexible in illumination
shaping and sizing. The spinning disk design can catch very low light levels
and produce even brighter images.
The new spiral pattern design, now available on all X-Light confocals, enhances
the confocal sectioning to an optimal level and minimises photo-bleaching over
long time-lapse acquisitions.
Key features of X-Light V3 spinning disk confocal include spectral range
(confocal/wide field) 400-750nm; fastest spinning disk in the market at 15,000
rpm rotation speed, up to kHz range; ultra-large field of view imaging – maximum
25m; lateral resolution (FWHM) ~ 230nm (high NA 1.4) diffraction limited; simultaneous
dual-camera view up to 25mm for each camera; axial resolution (FWHM) ~ 600 nm (high
NA 1.4); and customisable pinhole size and geometry.
