Andor Technology, an Oxford Instruments company, has added the BC43 benchtop confocal system to its microscopy portfolio.

A high-speed confocal microscope with a small footprint, BC43 is purposefully easy to use, allowing researchers to save time while capturing high-quality 3D images. Every component has been designed from the bottom up with performance and accessibility in mind.

Typically, microscopes capturing in 3D are expensive, complex to use and located in specialised darkroom facilities. This is especially true for confocal technology, which delivers high-quality 3D images, particularly in thick and more clinically relevant specimens.

Andor set out to change this with BC43, delivering 2D confocal images in milliseconds and generating 3D views in real time for immediate scrutiny. The compact design means it can sit on a bench in a regular lab, saving space and time. The system also offers a comprehensive imaging experience, handling scales from subcellular detail at single cell level right through to large model organisms and huge tissue samples, and does so in samples thicker than many microscopes are capable of handling.

Suitable for early-stage researchers and experienced microscopists alike, BC43 is simple enough to allow users to capture images within an hour of first using the device, yet sophisticated enough to address complex imaging needs for both live and fixed specimens. The result, the company says, is that researchers are empowered to capture quality images as part of their regular workflow and many times faster than other confocal microscopes.
