sCMOS Camera supports Light Sheet microscopy.

September 25, 2014

Available for Zyla 4.2 sCMOS Camera, LightSheet PLUS feature set ensures end-user has control over rolling shutter scanning mode. It allows user to synchronize scanning of illumination beam to sheet to defined scan row height on sensor. Image quality is optimized since scan row height can act as slit detector, rejecting scattered light and improving contrast and SNR. FlexiScan allows user to maximize signal and confocality concurrently, while CycleMax ensures minimum deadtime between scans. Read More

CCD Cameras feature light-tight Beryllium window.

March 6, 2014

Featuring -100°C deep cooling, iKon-M SY and Newton SY Series of standalone CCD detectors are suitable for high energy applications that require direct detection of soft X-ray region ranging from <2.5 to >20 keV, with rapid readout of 5 MHz and 2 MHz, respectively. Beryllium window, measuring 200 microns thick, blocks all unwanted lower energies and visible wavelengths with minimal beam hardening. Typical applications include soft X-ray imaging and X-ray fluorescence. Read More


Multi-Dimension Image Acquisition Software has optimized UI.

March 6, 2014

Used in laboratories to execute complex imaging protocols, iQ3 features UI which makes all major settings for 6 dimensional imaging readily available and thereby optimizes workflow and accelerates configuration. User management capabilities, which enable creation and management of personal settings to protect experimental configurations and images between users, also track usage for technical and financial management.

Illumination Source benefits multi-focal confocal microscopy.

December 13, 2013

Borealis® enhances illumination of all models of Yokogawa CSU10, 21, 22, and X1 scan heads regarding uniformity, throughput, and imaging performance. Extension of excitation wavelength range to 400–750 nm increases image quality, acquisition rates, image quantification, and imaging depth of thick or scattering specimens. While flexible bellows attachment to microscope enables strain-free alignment, field lens tubes enhance imaging performance and allow adjustment of effective pinhole size. Read More
