M44 - Spinning Disk Confocal Olympus (inverted) with incubation/Superresolution (SoRa)

System Description

The M44 Olympus spinning disk confocal is based on an Olympus IX3 Series (IX83) inverted microscope, equipped with a Yokogawa W1 spinning disk (SD). All components are controlled by CellSense software.

The system is able to run multidimensional experiments including any combination of the following: multiple positions, multiple wavelengths, Z-stacks, time-lapse. There is also a Olympus Z-Drift Compensation (ZDC) hardware autofocus system for long-term stabilization.

This makes it suitable for various live experiments or the automatic acquisition of a large amount of images (screening).

Additionally, an extra disk is installed to deliver images with up to 2-times enhanced spatial resolution, using super-resolution optical photon reassignment (SoRa) technology.
