Spinning disk confocal imagers 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 significant upgrades to an existing CSU10, CSU-21, CSU-22, or CSU-X1 confocal imager. Suitably upgraded and incorporating a Nipkow spinning disk, the CSU 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.
BioVision Technologies offers the CSU‐W1 confocal imager. Incorporating a Nipkow spinning disk, it brings a wider field of view and clearer images to the Yokogawa Electric CSU line.
BioVision Technologies offers the VS-Homogenizer optical component from Visitron Systems GmbH. It is designed to enhance the laser illumination of the CSU-W1.
This enhancement offers even illumination of large cell areas and allows high-sensitivity imaging of living cells without the need for mathematical shading correction.
This optical component can be added on request to CSU-W1 confocal scan heads that have already been installed.
