Overview

The Revolution WD and XD

The only solution when life is so precious

The Revolution WD delivers an outstanding field of view combined with unrivalled depth of focus, ideal for large or thick specimens. With a new disk design the Revolution WD produces high contrast imaging from low to high magnification, supporting the broadest range of samples and applications than ever before. This is the perfect choice for neuroscience, developmental biology, embryology, stem cell research, in-vivo imaging and core facilities.

In the Revolution XD we have integrated the CSU-X into a solution that offers the highest speeds and sensitivity for live cell imaging, optimized for high magnification cellular studies. The XD range is ideal for fast imaging applications such as vesicle tracking, calcium imaging, and cell motility.

In offering the new Neo sCMOS and iXon Ultra EMCCD with the Revolution XD and WD range we can offer unprecedented versatility for your research needs, meeting high speed and high resolution demands. We also manufacture many complementary devices such as laser combiners, camera adapters and our active illumination portfolio. Therefore, we offer the full complement of tools for your research needs, ensuring optimum performance and support.
