Andor Technology Ltd., Corporate HeadquartersRequest Info
BELFAST, Northern Ireland, June 29, 2016 — Confocal Imaging PlatformAndor Technology Ltd. has announced the Dragonfly high-speed confocal imaging platform, supporting multiple high-contrast imaging techniques.

The Dragonfly integrates Andor’s cameras with patented illumination technology and optimized optical design to deliver low noise, wide dynamic range, high resolution and high sensitivity in its images. The Borealis Perfect Illumination Delivery system delivers exceptional stability, uniformity and spectral range, extending into the near-infrared region where autofluorescence can be largely avoided.

Dragonfly is designed to provide fast and sharp imaging of a wide range of specimens ranging from bacteria to single molecules at the cell membrane, embryos, organoids, and fixed and acute tissue sections. Confocal illumination by hundreds of microbeams minimizes photobleaching and protects from phototoxicity, essential for successful live cell experiments. Laser wide-field imaging is integrated with GPU-accelerated deconvolution to embrace yeast and other thin specimen imaging, revealing high contrast and resolution at low exposure levels.

A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
