RCM1 Re-scan Confocal Microscope VIS or NIR / Microscopes imaging

The RCM1 is a highly sensitive super-resolution confocal system. It’s capable of reaching a 120nm resolution after deconvolution (170nm raw). Study living cells in high detail with minimal phototoxicity and photobleaching.

RCM1 Re-scan Confocal Microscope VIS or NIR summary

RCM1 is based on the Re-scan Confocal Microscope (RCM) principle. Capture datasets with 170nm raw resolution (120nm after deconvolution) by using 60x to 100x high numerical aperture (NA) magnification objectives and keep the laser intensity at a minimum. RCM1 acquires super-resolution images with only 85 nano-watts laser power.
