High-Speed Confocal Imaging

The Yokogawa CSU-W1 spinning disk unit helps you acquire high-speed confocal images with a larger field of view than traditional confocal microscopes. Olympus’ TruSight deconvolution algorithms can be applied to improve image resolution, contrast, and dynamic range for strikingly clear 3D images, even at greater observation depths.

Reduced Photoxicity

Designed for experiments involving live cells, the spinning disk reduces phototoxicity and bleaching. The Olympus real-time controller (U-RTCE) helps optimize the device’s speed and precision during automated acquisition, while the TruFocus system maintains focus for each frame and reduces stress to the sample during data acquisition.

Precise 3D Imaging

The pinhole geometry of the Yokogawa spinning disk produces excellent image contrast at greater depths for imaging into thicker samples. Additionally, the IXplore Spin system combines high numerical aperture silicone oil objectives with ergonomic spherical aberration correction collar adjustment to provide excellent light gathering and dimensional fidelity. These elements make the IXplore Spin system the right choice for researchers who need to image living cells at high resolution without sacrificing speed, accuracy, or image quality.

Upgrade to SpinSR

The IXplore microscope system is designed to meet your evolving research needs. The SpinSR super resolution module is available as an upgrade to any existing Olympus IXplore system and can be configured to fit your budget.*Image: Fluorescent staining of microtubules (red: Alexa 594) and actin (green: Alexa 488 phalloidin) in growth cone of NG108 cells.

Simultaneous Multicolor Confocal Imaging

The IXplore Spin laser combiner is scalable from two to six laser lines. A dual camera option is available to support simultaneous multichannel imaging when higher speed and a wider information bandwidth are required. Available excitation wavelengths include 405 nm, 445 nm, 488 nm, 514 nm, 561 nm, and 640 nm.

High Contrast under Bright Conditions

Designed for fluorescence observation, the Umbra light shield blocks out light pollution, even in bright rooms, enhancing fluorescence contrast and improving image clarity.
