Yokogawa CQ1 benchtop high-throughput 3D confocal imager

Tuesday, 12 March, 2024 | Supplied by: SciTech Pty Ltd


The Yokogawa CQ1 benchtop high-throughput 3D confocal imager enables 3D imaging and quantification of live cell clusters, such as spheroids, colonies and tissue sections. The imager is able to obtain results without the need to separate the cells in a cell cluster or remove them from a culture dish, for efficient testing with low phototoxicity. It utilises Nipkow spinning disk confocal technology to obtain high-speed yet gentle 3D image acquisition. A wide field of view and tiling capability enables easy imaging of larger specimens.

The 3D confocal imager uses a sensitive sCMOS camera, a laser illumination light source, excitation laser wavelengths of 405, 488, 561 and 640 nm, and objective lenses from 2 to 60X. It also uses laser and software autofocus and CellPathfinder software.

The unit is compact, lightweight and does not require a darkroom: just set up a sample, run the software and the versatile functions support measurements and analysis of time lapse and live-cell with a maximum of 20 fps option for fast time lapse. It is easy to trace back to the original image from a graph spot and make repetitive measurements. It is connectable with external systems via a handling robot and a variety of cell culture and sample dishes can be used.
