Multiple pinhole patterns:
Multiple disks are available, including 50um, 60um, and 40um pinhole sizes. Standard pinhole spacing is an excellent compromise between brightness, confocality and image quality. A version with larger spacing has been designed to enhance image quality and sectioning in thicker specimens thanks to the large reduction of crosstalk between pinholes.
Microlenses make the illumination field highly homogeneous on large fields of view. A unique plug-and-play design allows you to choose and change the illumination size to match the most common camera formats. If needed ,the illumination can be shrunk to a smaller area for higher power density, higher efficiency, and faster speed.
Dual color, dual imaging, still wider:
The X-Light V3 is first confocal unit to allow dual-camera imaging at the maximum field of view of 25mm on both cameras. Precision controls allow easily alignment between both cameras.
Sealed disk box:
This unique new feature makes the disk fully isolated and protected from environmental dust and prevents undesired artifacts related to the presence of small dust particles on the disk surface.
To manage very high-speed imaging, the V3 provides as a standard feature a synchronization a signal from the spinning disk to the camera. This allows for solid quantitative analysis of very fast dynamics.
A software controlled square iris in front of the spinning disk, with variable aperture, can be used to screen light and preserve the surrounding area of the sample out of a region of interest.
The X-Light V3 can be used on all modern microscope bodies.
