CrestOptics X-Light V3 spinning disk confocal

Saturday, 01 June, 2019 | Supplied by: SciTech Pty Ltd


Integrating cutting-edge technology, the X-Light V3 spinning disk confocal by CrestOptics has been engineered to meet the high-end specifications of modern fluorescence microscopy applications. It is said to be the first confocal unit to allow for dual-camera imaging at the full field of view of 25 mm on both cameras.

With the ability to break down background fluorescence, the product is efficient and homogeneous in illuminating large field of view in single- and dual-camera modes; it is also flexible in illumination shaping and sizing. The spinning disk design can catch low light levels and produce bright images.

The 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 include: spectral range (confocal/wide field) of 400–750 nm; rotation speed of 15,000 rpm, up to kHz range; ultralarge field of view imaging (maximum 25 m); lateral resolution (FWHM) of ~230 nm (high NA 1.4) diffraction limited; simultaneous dual-camera view up to 25 mm each camera; axial resolution (FWHM) of ~600 nm (high NA 1.4); and the ability to customise pinhole size and geometry.
