The Revolution XDi is based around an inverted microscope, the most common choice for live cell imaging. With a disk speed that supports up to 2,000 frames per second, it is the primary choice for high speed cellular dynamics and applications such as ion imaging. It delivers premium performance for speed and sensitivity at high magnifications. Flexibility The Revolution XD is more than just a spinning disk solution. For membrane related biology we can integrate with TIRF illuminators. Active illumination devices offer a deeper understanding of cell dynamics and signalling. Spinning disk...

Full Featured Upright Microscope System XDh has been designed to allow those who work on an upright microscope to benefit from the capabilities available from our full component range. The XDh is suitable for applications such as plant biology research, and in developmental biology models such as c.elegans and drosophila. In these cases, whilst an inverted microscope configuration is possible, an upright microscope can be more practical owing to the sample preparation with a glass coverslip more typically on the upper facing surface. Other examples of applications requiring an upright...

Revolution Custom Systems The flexibility for me to define a novel configuration for the Revolution XD allowed me to combine live cell imaging with laser tweezers. This offers new avenues of investigation for my research. At Andor we realize that, sometimes, even our adaptable and flexible off-the-shelf products are not enough to meet some of the more demanding application requirements of our customers. For this reason we provide a bespoke service to our customers, whereby a dedicated highly experienced team of engineers and application specialists provide customer specific solutions. The...

Microscopy System Cameras EMCCD technology revolutionized spinning disk confocal microscopy. The ability to cool to -100°C and the use of EM gain effectively eliminates noise and provides routine single photon sensitivity. The key benefits of Andor’s iXon EMCCD cameras are: The Neo sCMOS camera is the perfect partner to the iXon range. Though not as sensitive as EMCCD cameras, sCMOS runs at high speeds and has extremely low read noise at 1 e-/pix/sec, giving excellent signal to noise performance. The key benefits of Neo sCMOS are: • Extreme sensitivity for working at low levels of sample...

Microscopy System Components Rotr™ Filter Wheel - Emission discrimination Mosaic 3 - Active Illumination Our systems use filter wheels to select by wavelength or polarisation. Our new highspeed Rotr filter wheel offers wavelength switching up to nine frame pairs/sec when fully loaded with filters (manufacturers quote unloaded times). Multiple filter wheels are sequential. The Mosaic active illumination system utilizes digital mirror device (DMD) technology to control the illumination field of a fluorescence microscope. Using laser or arc lamp sources, Mosaic achieves real time and near...
