Super Resolution via Optical Re-assignment

  • XY resolution exceeding diffraction limit
  • 超分辨率活细胞成像的理想选择
  • 易于使用CSU
  • Upgradable from CSU-W1

XY resolution of approx. 120nm*1

XY resolution has been improved by approximately 1.4x the optical limit based on spinning-disk confocal technology.
Furthermore, a final resolution approximately twice the optical limit is realized through deconvolution.

In addition, live cell imaging is possible, reducing bleaching and phototoxicity.
