Overview

Revolution® DSD

Laser-free confocal microscop

Andor’s Revolution DSD is an innovative hybrid of spinning disk technology and structured illumination. This unique laser-free design delivers a budget friendly confocal solution to your laboratory. A simple device, which can even be added to an existing fluorescence microscope in your lab, the Revolution DSD means that confocal imaging can be a routine technique in your own lab. Whilst laser-free, the Revolution DSD can still achieve the optical sectioning and image quality you expect of a complex laser scanning confocal system, but with low maintenance costs. Furthermore, it does not need an expert to run it!

Features

Features Benefits
Real-time control and viewing Switch wavelength and mode in real time between wide field and confocal with one mouse click.
Full spectrum, laser-free Excitation 380-700 nm using Andor’s 200 W, DC-stabilized, high intensity, metal halide source.
Excellent confocality Active background rejection ensures strong, clear optical sections even at low magnification.
High throughput Efficient disk design delivers 50% transmission in high sectioning mode (HS) and 25% in high contrast (HC).
Highly cost effective Revolution® DSD is designed for high levels of performance with easy alignment and low maintenance.
Ideal for live cells and embryos Operating from 10X to 100X, makes DSD suitable for live cell, tissue and whole embryo applications.
Immuno, GFPs, ratio labels Broad spectrum source and filter selection allows use of visible and NIR optical probes.
Integrates with any microscope DSD connects to any side port and we offer customized supports for upright designs. Flexibility is a key goal.
Andor Clara – best in class camera Clara delivers the best interline CCD camera performance with lowest read noise and extended spectral range.
High performance light source 200 W DC stabilized, delivers twice the output of 120W models with 2000 hour, alignment-free lamp cartridge.
Active background rejection Patented optical design combines in-focus and out-of-focus light to reject background and deliver high contrast.
