Confocal Microscopy

When developing a confocal system whether it’s laser scanning, TIRF, laser sheet microscopy, or any other imaging technique, the laser source is the most critical element in your imaging system.  Having a stable, reliable and easy to use light source makes focusing on your imaging techniques and data collection the only items you have to worry about.  With an individual Stradus® lasers or the flexible multiline VersaLase™ system you will have a known, highly reliable and extremely stable illumination inputs for your imaging needs allowing you to focus on your research, not constantly servicing or adjusting your setup.
