Spinning disk confocal imager from Yokogawa Electric Corporation
The Confocal Scanner Unit is an industry standard for life science imaging. BioVision offers many unique modifications on new turnkey systems or upgrades for exisiting labs.
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.
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.
