New Spinning Disk Confocal

The new Ultravox View is now available!

The M25 system is an inverted microscope equipped with a spinning disc (SD) unit from PelkinElmer UltraView VoX allowing fast confocal acquisition. All components are controlled by Volocity.
The system is fully programmable and therefore able to run multidimensional experiments including any combination of the following: multiple positions, multiple wavelengths including brightfield (DIC), z-Stacks, time-lapse.
This makes it suitable e.g. for various live cell experiments or the automatic acquisition of a large amount of images (screening).
