White-Light Confocal System
Feb 2010
Andor Technology Ltd., Corporate HeadquartersRequest Info
BELFAST, Northern Ireland, Feb. 25, 2010 – For performing confocal microscopy with a white light source, Andor Technology plc has launched Revolution DSD, based on a differential spinning disk optical system working in conjunction with an Andor Clara high-sensitivity interline CCD camera and controlled by a proprietary iQ work station.

According to the company, using white light, as opposed to lasers, cuts costs.

The compact system fits the side port of any microscope and uses active background subtraction to deliver purely confocal or wide-field images, simplifying switching between techniques as well as binding and focusing of the specimen.

The system delivers strong optical sectioning even at low magnification and moderate frame rates per second. The patented spinning disk can be selected: one provides 50% transmission; the other, 25% for sectioning thicker specimens.
