The Perkin Elmer's revolutionary spinning-disk technology allows the system to scan the sample faster than any other available system - 1,000 times per second - yet provides superior image quality due to greater image averaging and a cooled EMCCD camera. Its speed and low level light sensitivity makes it ideal for live cell confocal imaging - providing reduced photo-bleaching and photo-toxicity - allowing you to study cellular events for extended periods of time, either through brightfield, fluorescence or confocal imaging.
Its laser lines include: 405nm, 440nm, 488nm, 514nm, 568nm and 640nm - and it is capable of imaging 6 colours at once. All are subject to precision control through Volocity Acquisition software. Additional Volocity Visualisation software allows you to manipulate data and volume-render, rotate and section in 3-D and 4-D. You can process confocal images captured as a stack of images at different focal points, and perform a number of other useful manipulations. Your time lapse studies can be made into QuickTime and AVI movies to help visualisation of the original confocal captured data.
