CSU-10 and CSU-22 Spinning Disk Confocal Imager

BioVision Technologies offers the CSU10, CSU-21, and CSU-22 confocal imagers with laser‐based illumination. Incorporating a Nipkow spinning disk, it acquires confocal images at video rates, minimizing photobleaching and phototoxicity – ideal characteristics for live cell work.

Optional Laser Merge Module
For applications requiring multiple excitation wavelengths, BioVision Technologies combines the CSU with the LMM5 Laser Merge Module from Spectral Applied Research. The LMM5 provides light from one to five diode lasers at a time; lasers are available in a range of wavelengths and powers.
Optional Upgraded Optics
BioVision Technologies offers the CSU with upgraded optics that provides increased power efficiency. This allows the use of lasers with lower power, and may reduce the exposure time required when acquiring an image.
Borealis Option
BioVision Technologies offers the CSU with Borealis upgrades to uniformity, collection of light and utilization of light. Contact us for details.
Optional Emission Filter Wheel
BioVision Technologies offers and supports filter wheels from Ludl Electronics Products, Prior Scientific and Sutter Instrument Company.
Optional Manual Variable‐Speed Controller
BioVision Technologies offers a manual variable-speed controller from Spectral Applied Research. Contact us for details.

CSU-X1 Spinning Disk Confocal Imager

BioVision Technologies offers the CSU‐X1 confocal imager. Incorporating a Nipkow spinning disk, it acquires confocal images with minimal photobleaching and phototoxicity, making it ideal for live cell work.

Basic and High‐end models are available. The Basic model offers a fixed‐speed scanner motor, while the High‐end model offers a variable speed motor.

The imaging speed of the Basic model matches that of the CSU-10, while the High-end model offers almost seven times that speed.

Its filter wheel switches between adjacent positions in 33 ms.
