CARVII

Spinning Disk Confocal Imaging

The Crest CARV II™ confocal imager utilizes a Nipkow spinning disk containing multiple sets of spirally arranged pinholes placed in the image plane of the objective lens. The column of excitation light is projected through 1000 pinholes to simultaneously scan the entire field once every millisecond, thereby creating a full image of the focal plane in real time. Emitted light is collected and imaged using a high-resolution and high quantum efficiency CCD camera.

  • Adapts to most major upright and inverted fluorescence microscopes
  • Fully automated real time confocal allows fast, multidimensional imaging of up to five or more fluorescent probes
  • Laser and white light based imaging permits full spectrum (360–700 nm) confocal imaging
  • The 6D data acquisition, display, and navigation tools enables easy setup and quick assessment of large sets of data including multiwavelength 3D reconstructions, 4D images, and montages
  • Advanced image processing including deconvolution allows image enhancement to bring out the information vital to your analysis and professional presentations
  • Advanced threshold techniques automatically identify regions of interest for morphometric analysis, distribution analysis, intensity analysis, and counting objects within objects
