Introducing Dragonfly It’s more than confocal... Dragonfly is a high-contrast multi-dimensional imaging platform capable of four key imaging modalities. At its core is a multi-point confocal for high-speed and highsensitivity imaging. Capturing at speeds at least 10x faster than conventional confocal technology, Dragonfly is the optimal solution for live cell imaging, providing low phototoxicity and photobleaching, or perfect for fast volume acquisition of fixed samples. Super-resolution is a second feature of Dragonfly, which can leverage a variety of techniques to push the resolution...

Camera Zoom At each camera port there is a motorized 3 position magnification changer (500 series) or single/double motorized changer (200 series) containing 1x, 1.5x and 2x optics. If you are using a sensitive camera with a larger pixel, such as on the iXon Ultra 888 (13 µm), moving to a 2x zoom allows you to reach Nyquist sampling with 60x and 100x high NA objective to ensure all the finest details from your sample are captured. The level of detail is then only limited by the objective you use. Right: A comparison of the same cell with sub-images showing enhanced resolution of fine detail...

Illumination Zoom (500 series) The illumination path for widefield and confocal modes has a motorized 4-position zoom mechanism. This enables the illumination light to be focused into a smaller area and deliver a higher power density to the sample when an application requires more light from the laser source, for example dSTORM. Mode Increase in power density Power density Right: Using the Illumination Zoom to increase the power density of illumination. Selectable Illumination Field Aperture Size Dragonfly includes a variable aperture to best match the area of illumination to the camera...

Integrated Software Solutions Fusion Fusion has been designed to meet the requirements of today’s expectations for ease of use and immediate visual feedback for data review, whilst fulfilling tomorrow’s aspirations for handling multi-modal imaging. Fusion simplifies the control of the Dragonfly system, with its multiple imaging modes, to fluorophore and imaging mode selection in just three mouse clicks. A “New Specimen” feature lets you switch specimens with two mouse clicks, refocusing the objective automatically. Once the sample is on the microscope you can control all hardware, including...
